As a general rule, houses begin to be rented for the following school year beginning in August. So, sophomores should be looking as soon as they come back from summer vacation to insure you get a house. Houses are usually rented by thanksgiving break for the next school year. (Junior year)

How to rent a house 101

    •    Get your group together

    •    Find the house you want (and if it's available...)

    •    Go thru the house. (I'm sure the current tenants wouldn't mind...)

    •    Find out if the current tenants are going to retain it.

    •    Review the contract

    •    Get your deposit money together, which is $500 per student. You'll need to pay the deposit when you sign the     contract.

    •  Set up a meeting to sign the contract and pay your deposit. Everyone must be present to sign, and all the deposits must be paid at that time. 

    •  The house is yours.... You're no longer homeless, but you live in the Ghetto, and your mother can't believe you're living in The Ghetto! (Good News...Bad News…)


In one episode of 'Cheers', Cliff is seated at the bar describing the 'Buffalo Theory' to his buddy Norm. I don't think I've ever heard the concept explained any better than this...

"Well you see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive drinking of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
