Spending This Summer in Your Student Apartment


Summer's just weeks away, finals are around the corner, and you're not sure what your plans are for the next couple months. Maybe your internship fell through, or you couldn't find anything that really appealed to you for the summer, and you really aren't loving the idea of going back home and living at Mom and Dad's for the next three months while you wait for the fall semester to begin.

Does that sound like you? If it does, why not consider staying in your student apartment in Athens for the summer instead of going back home? If you play the situation correctly, you can make this summer an unforgettable experience in the comfort of your first real home as an adult. Here are a few reasons why staying in your Court Street Apartments in Athens, Ohio can be a great way to make the most of the summer!

You're Paying For It

When you sign your lease for the year, you sign it for the entire year, not just for the school year. Even if you're not living in your apartment during the summer, you still have to pay your landlord rent for those months per the terms of your contract. With that being the case, why not use your paid-for home to enjoy one more summer of limited responsibilities and making memories with friends? Or you could get some real-world experience by picking up a part-time job in Athens and seeing how you do when you're responsible for keeping your own hours and staying on top of your work. It's totally up to you.


Further Taste of Freedom

And that's one of the biggest reasons to stick around Athens for the summer: you're free to set your own rules in your home. When you're at your parents' house, even though you're a legal adult, it's still their home, and they're the ones making the rules. If they don't like noise after 2 a.m., it's going to be awkward if you come home late and wake them up.

 At your apartment, however, you're in control. As long as you pay your rent, follow local ordinances and don't damage the property, anything goes. If you want to come home late, nobody's going to get upset with you when you walk into your apartment. You make all the rules, and if you're like most Ohio U students, you can still go back and spend some time with the family while spending most of your time at your home. That's a win-win.

Pushing Yourself or Taking It Easy

If you're so inclined, sticking around Athens also gives you the chance to sign up for summer classes. Most classes are a little easier during the summer than they are in the regular school year, so if there's a course you're dreading, you can take it in a more relaxed summer setting. Or you can relax and enjoy some of the great summer festivals in Athens, or even make time for both. However you want to spend your summer, you're free to make the most of it.

Remember, every experience is what you make of it, and a summer at your home at Court Street Apartments in Athens, Ohio could pay major dividends in the long run. Whether you're partying with friends, hitting the books, or discovering if Athens might be where you want to call home after college, there's plenty you can do this summer to make it a memorable experience, one you'll look back on fondly down the road.
