The single and double choices gives students who are different, either extroverted or introverted a chance to have a say to their living environment and its healthy.

The food is okay. Lots of vegetarian and vegan options.

Social and Town Life:

1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Starbucks is near but everything else is pretty expensive.

Its a big enough school to not feel obligated to have toxic relationships with people who are not healthy for you.
