Welcome to Sac State’s “Fleeky Friday”, where Hornets tune in to hear the latest in pop culture and learn what’s weak, and what’s on fleek. So what’s on fleek this week?
This week, everyone’s talking about 17 year-old Kylie Jenner. You may assume it’s because of her recent break up with 25 year-old rapper, Tyga, but the more relevant topic at hand is her newly purchased $2.7 million Calabasas mansion she now calls home. She searched for just shy of a year to find a home that’s a perfect fit for her. With her 18th birthday around the corner, this will be Kylie’s first time leaving the nest. Most undergraduates here at Sac State are at a similar point in their lives. Although it may not consist of a $2.7 million mansion like Kylie, finding the perfect off campus living space is just as exciting.
Residence hall life is a start to living on your own as it allows students to be independent while still offering assistance from the campus provided Resident Advisors (RAs). After the first year at Sac State, many students decide to move out of the residence halls with roommates to minimize expenses but the search can be a time consuming and nerve-racking experience.
To help ease the process, here are a few tips and suggestions for our fellow Hornets.
- The most important factor is convenience and location. Don’t complicate your college career even more by moving far away from campus, providing you with a lengthy commute.
Often times students forget that traffic in Sacramento can coincidentally be at its worst when you are in your car running late to your next class. It’s recommended that you find a residence within a 2-mile radius to campus. There are many places to consider within that 2-mile radius.
- The most popular places for students to go post residence hall living typically include the following qualities:
- A large student demographic
- Options to pay rent by room/individually, or even month-to-month.
- Round the clock shuttle to the Sac State Campus.
- Some of these qualities can be found at Apartment complexes such as;
- “The Element: Student Living”
- “Rivercrest Apartments”
- “The Upper Eastside Lofts”
- “The Phoenix Apartments”
- “Riverbridge Apartments”
Sure, moving into an off campus apartment isn’t anywhere near as luxurious as buying a mansion at the age of 17, but it is just as awesome living your life as a fun and independent young adult. Good luck to anyone who, like Kylie, is venturing out into the world of independence!
