Students with last housing time slot to live with Bravman

For college students, one of the – if not the number one – biggest stresses, stems from registering for housing. Luckily, the University has many wonderful housing options that students are willing to set up a literal Fight Club-style fighting ring for early housing registration time slots.

The most coveted on-campus spots are the South Campus Apartments, more commonly (and much more accurately) known as the Senior Apartments. This year, the Senior Apartments were all filled in a matter of seconds, leaving many students worried about where they would end up living next year. Some hastily drove to Bass Pro Shops in fear that they may have to pitch tents in the 24-hour room of Bertrand Library.  

Despite the recent mold events of last semester, on-campus housing is, without a doubt, the best option for students. Nevertheless, there are always some students who would prefer to live downtown for easy access to nightlife — whatever that is in central Pa. — and alcohol poisoning. 

This year, housing registration was such a battle that a new on-campus living option opened up: rooms in University President John Bravman’s house. While the housing fee is increased by threefold to rent a room in the President’s house, many students had no other option than to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

“I am a little wary about living in Bravman’s house next semester, I just hope he’s a chill RA,” John Brayman ’24 said, a mechanical engineering student.

Other students were more optimistic about the Bravman rent-a-room situation. “Home cooked meals and family game night? Count me in,” Jani Bayman ’23 said.

The campus community is excited to see the first ever group of students living in what will be called “The Thunder Dome.” The University has announced that the campus shuttle will make stops for students living in the President’s house.
