A note about the apartments:

If you are living in any of our apartments (Young North, Young East, Geneva Arms, or Schoolhouse), you have a living room and a kitchen (Young Hall, Geneva Arms and the Schoolhouse have stoves). You should talk to your roommates about kitchen supplies and living room furniture to complete your apartment. You and your roommates can also choose to buy cable from our local Comcast representative once you arrive on campus.
