From Nora: What a glorious and releiving feeling it is to KNOW WHERE I AM LIVING NEXT YEAR. And, due to one of Bates’ unique housing options, I got to do it all even before the housing lottery occured.
Next year I’m living in Moulton house, a campus owned house on Frye street that, next year, is an Irish/Celtic Heritage theme house. I’ll be living in a triple with two of my friends – and, because each theme house is student organized and student proposed, the house is literally brimming with all my friends. I’m so psyched to be living on Frye street, and knowing that I don’t have to even worry about the housing lottery is such a relief, I’m all set!
The other theme houses for next year, other than the Irish house, are a verse house (of the poetry and lyrical persuasion), a Bates healthy & local living house (or at least that’s my understanding) and a literature house (as my friends, the two coordinators for that house call it “the Library”). Bates certainly has options… and I’ve taken full advantage!
