Liked busby. Had it’s own A/C And hear which you controlled which was so nice. Bathrooms are shared between you and your roommates and the three others who you are connected to via the bathroom. My biggest con: you could never get away from people, there was never really “my own space”. Pros: privat...

Busby was bittersweet! It was really nice sharing a bathroom with only 5 other people as opposed to an entire floor. One thing to keep in mind is you can lock the bathroom from the inside, but not the outside, therefore your suitemates can technically enter your room without a key, and they can pote...

For food north or north west are the closest. Distance from all of campus can be annoying that hill begins or arou...

Yes, the location is very far from most buildings, but you get used to the hill and it offers you a chance at exercise anyway. Busby is so nice, the building still looks fairly new, the rooms are bigger than the ones in Garrigus, and the bathrooms are nicer as well. It's a very cozy building and I l...
