This semester I made the big move down Jamestown Road to the Ludwell Apartments. Ludwell is the apartment complex that is owned by the College and while it’s a little bit of a walk from campus to Ludwell and my number of naps per week has definitely decreased, I would never trade the great accommodations and the sense of freedom that I enjoy here. Ludwell apartments are either double apartments, triple apartments or quad apartments. I live in a quad so there are two double rooms and we share the living room, dining room, kitchen and bathroom.
My favorite part about living in Ludwell is that I feel like I can have a separation between campus, where I am constantly moving around and busy with activities and classes and meeting friends, and home where I can work without distraction and have quiet nights with my roommates that are in stark contrast of the crazy activity of campus. My roommates’ favorite part of me moving in for this semester is that with steady access to a kitchen, I’ve become pretty “domestic” and will randomly decide to make a complete dinner that everyone reaps the benefit of.
All in all, I have to say that I’ve loved my time in Ludwell. It’s a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of campus where I can still feel connected to my friends and with the convenience of living on campus.
