    Rawlins or Potworks? + Dorm internet

    Advertisements



    Hello current MUA students,

    So I'm guessing, Potworks is the better choice of the two?

    Also, does the dorm internet have a price attached to it (per semester or whatever)?Coz, if so, wouldn't Vonage be the better choice?

    I dont know if Potworks would be the better choice. I have heard that they are making Potworks rooms into doubles (could be a rumor). Potworks is only good for the rooms being single and close to the school.

    Rawlins on the other hand is awesome (especially if you dont have a roommate!!) Almost everyone in your class is there, and there is the restaurant downstairs. The bad part: roommates, mold, distractions, away from the school, clax...(the dorm manager) and your roommate.

    You can also hope to get placed into a house somewhere, like in Rawlins pastures or Brick Kiln.

    Rawlins internet is $80 per semester per person. It sucks!!!! Service is too slow. Potworks, you have to get your own internet installed (which could take a while) but the service is decent.

    yo stookie, internet at Rawlins dorms was UPGRADED during our last 2 blocks there. The internet at Rawlins kicks buttocks now. It worked all the time and was fast as hell (I was downloading movies and albums at over 100kbps).

    Yes, there are two desk in every room at Rawlins. You can walk, but it's a long walk, and with the heat, well, good luck. There is a van that picks everyone up in the morning and drops them home after school. Eventually everyone gets a car so no one takes the bus anymore.
    No one sticks around in the dorm you must find somewhere else to live.
