    The Dominica Blacklist

    Did your cleaning person steal from you? Were you grossly overcharged for a service? Did you send your clothes to the laundromat only to have a piece or two of your nicest garments stolen? Have a landlord who charges you outrageous prices yet refuses to fix anything?

    Make your fellow Ross students aware of who they can trust and who they cannot.

    This should be a sticky.

    I'll start off with Rosie's restaurant on Lizard trail. A few days ago I went to eat there and had a meal clearly priced from the menu at $20. After eating the lady there lets me know that the meal is $30 because she supposedly gave me more food, even though I didn't ask for it. I paid because I saw a few locals looking at me angrily. It appears that there is a reason that only locals eat at Rosies'. I spoke to another student who ate there two weeks prior, and apparently the EXACT SAME THING happened to him.

    Let this be a warning to any Ross students.

The landlords are shady for splitting 1 or 2 connections for a building of 30 - 40 people. I had speeds that were as slow as dial-up on some days.

    The water there was HORRIBLE too. I don't know what was in the water or if it was an island-wide thing but the skin on my palms would start flaking and becoming wrinkled EVERY TIME I took a shower. There was this unpleasant odor to the water too.

    For what I paid, I should have gotten better service.
    your problems are not associated particularly with Avies. Its the whole damn island. Dirty water and unreliable internet is part of the life here at Ross. I didn't have internet all last week and my water this whole semester has been brown. When I flush my toilet, I get an even dirtier water back then that was in there before flushing. eww

    Lol, thanks for that.

    I disagree btw - there have definitely been times when there hasn't been rain for a while and Avies STILL had brown water while everywhere else had nice clean hot showers. There ARE places where the water is cleaner and the internet faster, but you have to pay for it and good luck getting on the wait list, because the people who are there, don't budge until it's time for them to leave the island.

    I know I complain about Avies a lot, but one thing that's great about them there, is their staff (exluding the people in the office). My apartment is always super clean, the dishes done - the lady's really sweet and definitely getting a big tip from me at the end of the semester.

    That being said, it's still not worth it to stay there. For all the new students, please don't live here. They've gotten really complacent because they realize that they will ALWAYS have students who live there, so they don't really care about whether or not the students living there are actually satisfied.

    Boooo Avies!

    I know of at least one student who disregarded the black list. He received a late night visit from the SGA special ops and and now he kinda keeps to himself.

    Do not live in avies ville

    I HAVE NEVER AGREED MORE. AVIES VILLE, OLD AND NEW IS TERRIBLE. I lived in Old Avies Ville and my boyfriend lived in New Avies ville. The water is brown ALL THE TIME. we both have had eye infections from the shower water. ANTS ARE ALL OVER TEH PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have never seen so many ants....even if you never cook adn have no food in your house the ants are everywhere... did i mention that not only is the water brown but you normally only have water a few tiems a week. when you do, not only is it brown it is cold.

    the landlord is rude and does not care at all. you can complain as much as you want. t

    i personally haven't had water problems at New Avies, and i know it's not just me. i only get brown water when it rains hard, and i always have high-pressure hot water. there are ants, also especially if it rains, but not that much. and i've noticed they only come when i have a few dirty dishes in the sink. they seem to especially like peanut butter.

    i'm just curious about what's up with the future pool/hot springs. i feel like they've been working on it forever, but i don't see any changes.
