    Potworks

    Advertisements



    Can any current students comment on the potworks dorm? I was just assigned a single there which seems pretty cool. Is it near the cafeteria/gym? Will it take 3 months before someone comes to set up internet access there?

    Potworks is like a 5 min walk from Campus there is a gym upstairs from the building. It will take about 2 weeks to get internet set up only because Cable and Wireless likes to wait till everyone has come and then they can just show up and do everyones internet at once in that building.
    The rooms are allright not the best, but again you are VERY close to campus which will come in handy when you wanna go study at the lib or especially the anatomy lab.

    Rawlins Dormitory is a 30-45 minute walk from school. Alternatively, you wake up in time to catch the 7am bus to school and wait for the 4 or 5pm bus to come back - school bus: free and 10minutes.

    At Rawlins you will have a roommate - so if you're big on personal space and having a quiet room all to yourself, spend the extra $200 or whatever it is, and opt for Potworks.

    Rawlins has 2 floors... PreMed and Med students live together. There are 32 room and 64 people in this building.

    The perks:
    • Laundry facility right next door
    • George's restaurant right next door (for when you're sick or *****)
    • Mini-store right next door...bread, milk, eggs, veggies, fruits, canned stuff, cookies, rice, oil, etc. etc. ... you name it they either have it will get it.
    The drawbacks:
    • Small living space (same size room for 2 people at Rawlins vs 1 person at Potworks)
    • No sink in the "kitchen" area - and the fridge is a mini-unit.
    • Distance from school - which limits your going and coming to the bus schedule (or the local buses)
    Oh and no gym above us...but then the quality of the gym above Potworks isn't that fabulous either.

    So on the whole...both have their + and -. I'm personally a big fan of the store next door - means I don't have to go to town all the time for milk and bread And since I prefer studying in my room, the whole distance thing doesn't phase me.

    Hope that helps
