Letter from the Editor: Do your research before signing a lease


The semester is swiftly coming to an end and so are many students’ leases.

Some of you will be graduating in two short weeks while some may be touring campus for the first time. Some of you will move away from Murfreesboro to start your career and some will be apartment hunting for the fall.

Regardless of the situation, remember this: you’ll spend several hours on campus, at a job or out with friends, but your home — whether it be a dorm room, apartment or house — is ultimately where you’ll be spending most of your time.

There will be nights you won’t leave the library until 2 a.m. and will have to park three buildings down from your apartment. For that reason, and many others, choose a place where you feel safe and be mindful of your surroundings. At Sidelines, we see the crime reports every morning. We know it’s not always safe.

In this edition, we look at crime at student apartment complexes, housing conditions on campus, recipes for college students and share our own roommate stories, as well.

So choose wisely when deciding on a place to live because, chances are, you’ll be there for a year.

This Letter from the Editor appeared in the April 20 edition of Sidelines.
