- I looked for other private apartments,

00:08

but I preferred this because I felt

00:11

that I would be more secure if I lived in the university

00:13

apartments.

00:15

- It's very affordable and it's very near campus.

00:20

I can walk and it's very convenient.

00:22

- I think that there's more community closer to campus,

00:26

and it creates a sense of well-being and culture

00:29

and community.

00:30

- The coordinators are pretty good with the--

00:32

they always sponsor events like some ice skating,

00:37

apple picking, pumpkin carving.

00:40

So we know that is sponsored by the University.

00:44

- All of us, all of the people who live here,

00:47

are students, so we know each other.

00:49

We know each other's schedules.

00:51

- People who live here are from different countries.

00:55

Some-- [? I've met ?] most of them, like to meet people.

00:59

- My son goes to the WSU Children's Center

01:02

and there are many families whose kids also go there.

01:05

So it's that sense of community, that all of us

01:08

belong to the same [? thing. ?]

01:10

- Consolidating all of our bills into one place--

01:13

it just reduces a lot of stress when it comes

01:15

to paying bills every month.

01:16

- We can easily call the maintenance people

01:20

and they're prompt.

01:21

We can trust them.

01:22

- Well, I actually applied for WSU housing

01:26

while serving in Peace Corps.

01:27

I think I did the entire WSU Family Housing

01:30

application from a Blackberry.

01:33

- It's peaceful, it's safe.

01:37

We like it.
