Once you begin to tire of dorm life, your sights set on picking the right apartment complex, townhouse, or house. After all, there's only so much walking across campus and munching on D-hall favorites that one can take. However, at JMU, every off-campus place seems to be the complete one. Students have a wide, varied selection that unfortunately does vary in price and atmosphere as well. For those who rejoice in meeting new partygoers and social animals, there is a multitude of apartments to choose from. Conversely, if you’re someone whose weekends are an excuse for more studying, there are apartments that will tickle your fancy as well. Students who hang out in large groups may choose houses that can fit up to 10 people, while apartments group three to four students.
Unfortunately, most of the apartments are not within walking distance. Most students resort to the occasional bus or car or mooching for rides from friends. Houses are also available in the same vicinity as JMU, but those tend to be a bit isolated from the hordes of upperclassmen in apartments. Plus, once students officially say goodbye to the luxury of walking to class, they must say hello to the drag of scouting parking spots.
