I need a place to live, too.

I had my mind set on just living in my hometown and commuting to school this fall. I was accepted at UMASS Amherst and into their honors college (Commonwealth College). I just found out that there is separate housing options for the honors college students with all kinds of benefits and whatnot. The downside is that it's going to cost buckets of duckets. I already have all my tuition and fees on the house, but this won't be included.

My mother, who usually knows what's best for me, said that I should probably just live there. The environment and the people that I'll be around is almost enough to convince me right now. I won't be anywhere near all the partying college kids, so that'll help me stay focused (not likely, but I like to tell myself this). I would still need a vehicle if I wanted to keep my job here at the bike shop in my hometown. I hate driving. What to do?

Good luck, the partying is everywhere on campus and off. I'm a '96 grad of Umass amherst. You definitely want to live there, you will have a great time.

There is (was) a student run bike shop/co-op in the student union. I worked there for my last two years. You won't make any money, but its fun and you can probably still get cheap parts.

Lots of good riding up there too, on and off road.

It looks like they may be paying for my housing as well! That pretty much solved my problem

If/when I leave, it just may very well be.
