Dorm vs. Apartment: Which to Choose?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 13, 2017

Foxridge apartments, Blacksburg, VAThe choice between living on- or off-campus can be as difficult as choosing which college to attend. Just as you debated the pros and cons of each college campus, similar consideration should be given to your housing choice. For incoming freshmen, the choice will probably be made for you. But if you are a sophomore or upperclassman, you might want to consider living off-campus. Before you make a decision, let’s take a look at what each option has to offer.

Dorm Life

  • Utilities Included - Unlike apartments, the Internet, telephone, cable, water, and electricity is typically free in a dorm. Some colleges may charge a small connection fee for cable or Internet, but it’s not nearly as expensive as the monthly fees you would pay in an apartment.
  • Social Life – Most college dorms have planned social activities each month that help students meet new people and make new friends. There are several campus activities, usually within walking distance of your dorm. For example, you might be able to go to a football game, watch a movie, or attend a club function. Don’t forget, most campus activities are also free to students!
  • Resident Advisor (RA) – Someone is always on staff at the dorms to handle emergencies or to lend a shoulder to cry on after a hard day. Think of your RA as a combination of building superintendent and your big brother/sister.
  • Less Chores – Many students who live on-campus also purchase a meal plan. This means you don’t have to cook or clean any dishes! The college may also provide cleaning services for the common areas and community bathrooms, so you’ll only be responsible for making your bed and washing your clothes. • Free Amenities – Some college dormitories come equipped with game rooms, pool tables, and a large-screen TVs for watching movies or sports.

Apartment Living

  • Privacy – Let’s face it, it’s nearly impossible to have any privacy in a dorm. Apartments provide much more privacy. Even if you choose a 'shared' apartment arrangement, which are popular at communities near college campuses, you will typically have a private bedroom and bathroom.
  • Fewer Rules – In the dorm, you will have very strict codes of conduct and possibly even a curfew. When you live in an apartment, you can come and go as you please, often with fewer restrictions on what you can do within your own space. Another advantage is less surprise inspections. Although the apartment manager may have access to your space at any time, he/she will typically notify you in advance. Dorm inspections can happen any time and occur frequently.
  • More Space - In most cases, your apartment will have much more space than your dorm. You’ll have a full kitchen, a living area, a bedroom, and a private bathroom. In the dorm, you’ll be lucky to have enough space for your bed and a desk.
  • Food is Cheaper – In many cases, shopping for groceries and making your own meals is cheaper than the campus meal plans or ordering fast food. On-campus, you have fewer options for meals and you are at the mercy of the cafeteria’s hours. Living in an apartment gives you the option of more menu choices and you can eat whenever you feel hungry.
  • Entertain Guests – Unlike the dormitory, you won’t have to ask permission of the RA or your roommate to have a guest over for dinner or to spend the night. Parties are also easier to host off-campus, but keep in mind your neighbors will not take kindly to loud music at all hours of the night.

Before deciding which option may be best for you, consider all the costs associated with both living arrangements. Each will offer different challenges and perks, but both will help guide you on your path toward adulthood and parent-free living. In the battle between dorm and apartment living, there’s really no wrong or right answer; it’s a personal choice every college student will need to make.

Veterans will Soon Shop Tax-Free

Joseph Coupal - Friday, November 10, 2017

Foxridge Apartment, Blacksburg, VAIf you are part of the ROTC program at Virginia Tech, you may come from a family of veterans or you may know veterans. Either way, you'll be interested to know that starting later this year, all honorably discharged veterans, no matter their branch of service, will be eligible to shop tax-free online at the Army & Air Force Exchange Service with the same discounts they enjoyed on base while in the military. It’s the latest way in which the organization is trying to keep its customers as the armed forces shrink and airmen and soldiers buy more for delivery.

Adding 13 million potential new customers will give extra ammunition to the group that runs the stores on U.S. Army and Air Force bases worldwide as it fights Amazon and other retailers for veterans’ online shopping dollars.

Since hiring its first civilian CEO five years ago, the Exchange has upgraded the brands at base stores to include items like Disney toys, Michael Kors fashions and other top names. Like private stores, it’s also imposed tighter cost controls, reduced the number of employees and improved people’s experience on the website.

“The intent is to really beat Amazon at their game because we have locations literally on the installations,” said CEO Tom Shull. “We’re leaning toward not just ship-from-store but pick-up-from-store and eventually deliver-from-store.”

The Exchange is adding shipping centers within its stores to allow it to send products directly from those locations more cheaply and quickly. Twenty-six stores now ship orders, and that will expand to 55 by the end of the year.

Within the next three years, Shull said the goal is to deliver something on base within two hours of when it is ordered. That’s possible partly because the Exchanges are already on base, cleared by security.

The Exchange delivers most orders on the second day now. Shull said shipping from stores will make a big difference in regions around bases, which are often in more rural areas.

Expanding online shopping to all honorably discharged veterans is expected to add about $200 million annually within three years to the $8.3 billion in sales the Exchanges generated last year.

Adding those shoppers, what Shull called “the foundation of our growth,” is critical to help offset the 13 percent decline in the number of active-duty Army and Air Force soldiers since 2011 when the Exchange generated $10.3 billion revenue.

“It’s a modest benefit, but it can save you thousands of dollars a year,” said Shull, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy who served in the Army for a decade before starting a retail career at chains including Macy’s.

Former Marine Forrest Cornelius was among the first to sign up at the verification website when it launched in June, and got a chance to start shopping early to test it out. The 51-year-old was impressed by the site and a deal he found on Ray-Ban sunglasses.

“The biggest thing is price. They’re always going to be a little bit cheaper,” said Cornelius, who lives in Dallas.

But competing on price in today’s retail environment is increasingly difficult, said Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough. Just look at how much trouble Walmart has competing with Amazon, he said, because Walmart has the fixed costs associated with its stores.

“To think you’re going to compete on price, you’re going to have a hard time there,” he said.

Under Shull’s leadership, the Exchange stores have traded their industrial feel and reliance on off-brand merchandise for a more modern look featuring well-known labels.

Two-thirds of the main Exchange store at Offutt Air Force Base resembles any department store, with prominent displays of name-brand makeup, Nike fitness gear and Carter’s clothes for kids. The rest is filled with the kind of electronics, appliances, housewares and toys found at Walmart or Sears, with major brands in every section.

The Exchanges don’t pay rent for their military base locations, and the government transports some of their supplies and goods to far-flung locations, but otherwise they operate mostly like an independent retailer. Roughly two-thirds of the employees are family members of soldiers or airmen.

The Exchange, which is part of the Defense Department, reported earnings of $384 million last year. That’s a sharp contrast from five years ago when Shull arrived to projections of $180 million in losses.

Of last year’s profit, $225 million was returned to the defense department to help pay for quality-of-life programs on bases like child development and fitness centers. Besides the main stores, the Exchanges also operate more than 70 movie theaters and bring in franchise restaurants and other vendors for the shopping malls it operates on bases.

Shull feels those are good reasons for the new online shopping privileges to draw veterans to do their shopping there.

“Veterans value the cost savings and what they can do to support the military,” he said.

Some Fun Things To Do in Blacksburg, VA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 10, 2017

Foxridge Apartment, Blacksburg, VAThis is the quintessential university town with plenty to do and equally attractive to college students, young professionals, retirees, and weekenders.If you live in our apartments in Blacksburg, VA here are some fun things to do around the area.

Downtown Blacksburg - Blacksburg has more students than it does permanent residents. The heart of downtown is Main Street, which features numerous bars, restaurants, and shops that cater to both the students and locals. The central business district is only about six blocks long, so it makes for an easy stroll. Downtown is cozy and relaxing: forget about making plans and go explore it for a while.

College Sports - Blacksburg draws large crowds on game weekends. Even if you are not a fan, the energy and atmosphere is an awesome experience. There’s tailgating and parties after every game, win or lose. Basketball is also gaining popularity. Going to a VT basketball game is no longer an easy ticket go get: schools like Duke, UNC, NC State and Wake Forest play here, all in a facility that gives you the up-close feel of a high school gymnasium. Games (and hotels) sell out quickly during big game weekends.

Also check out the 1774 Smithfield Plantation House, one of the first large farms established in Southwestern Virginia. Filled with early American history, the plantation house is now owned and run as a museum. For more fun, visit Adventure World skating rink or Crimper’s Indoor Climbing Gym in nearby Christiansburg. Or, during the summer spend a lazy day tubing on the beautiful New River.

Art, more than a form of expression, is a way of life in Blacksburg. On any given night, one can experience the lively music of Sidewalk Stage along College Avenue, out of this world shopping and dining, a show at the historic Lyric Theatre, or a world class performance at the Moss Arts Center at Virginia Tech. For the late nighters, the fun continues with everything from Funk to Rock and Roll at some of Blacksburg’s infamous watering holes.

Just around the block is Market Square Park where the farm to table experience comes to life and the talents of artisans throughout the valley are celebrated on Wednesdays and Saturdays during the warm weather months. Wednesday evenings in the summer brings out the talents and revelry of heritage music and dance at the Market Square Jam.

Financial Steps to Take When You Start College

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 12, 2017

Foxridge, Blacksburg, VAAs students start college this year, they face new freedom and responsibility. A college finance consultant tells CNBC that for most students, starting college is a "first step towards financial independence."

Over 44 million Americans hold a total of $1.4 trillion in student loan debt and it takes them, on average, 20 years to pay off those loans. In order to master the transition and not fall into dangerous amounts of debt, students need to remain disciplined and organized.

These six steps can help any incoming student start college off on the right foot and prepare for their financial future.

Create a budget

The first step, of course, is for kids to start to manage the money they have on their own. Create a budget. It may be the first time a college student has seriously looked at the numbers.

The next part of creating your budget it to track your expenses. What can be helpful, especially for kids who have never done this before is to try tracking their expenses for the first 30 days to see, "Where am I spending my money?"

Cut costs

Contrary to popular belief, there are many ways college students can cut costs. Even though your parents may be paying the bulk of the bill, there are also decisions that you can make that are going to make a difference in what they end up having to pay.

One of the biggest ways to save money is on transportation. Don't take a car to college. It is one of the biggest expenses for students. Most campuses have good public transportation systems, so if you can avoid taking a car, that's going to save money on insurance and the cost of parking.

Students can also save money by choosing affordable housing options. In many college towns, off-campus apartments are often less expensive than paying room and board and fees at school. Also, the more roommates you have, the better as far as monthly rent and bills.

In order to save money on expensive text books, check the college library for copies that can be borrowed. Also, look into renting textbooks online or through the university book store.

And instead of subsisting off of ramen noodles for weeks on end, try to make the most of an affordable meal plan. It will be better for the physical and financial health in the long run.

Keep your parents in the loop

Most students pay for college with the help of a parent or family member.

The families that are the most successful are those families who approach it as a team.

Parents have got to be in the conversation with their kid about what their responsibilities are. When students do not fulfill their responsibilities, it is important that they learn the hard way. If your kids mess up, you have to let them mess up and not bail them out immediately, which can be really hard.

It's the students' college experience, but students need to be communicating with parents and working with parents to make decisions that are good for them and good for everyone.

In order to promote this communication and transparency, students will need to give parents access to their financial records. Students have to grant permission to their parents to see certain parts of their records. They want to give access to the bill so they are sure that their parents are seeing it and taking care of things.

Explore campus jobs

Having a campus job is one way for students to cover personal expenses and help contribute financially to their degree. The type of job you can get depends on whether work-study is included in your financial aid package, but even students who aren't awarded work-study may be able to find paid work on campus.

In order to see what your options are, set a meeting with your college's student employment office and find what kind of jobs you are eligible to apply for. Networking with older students is also a great way to learn about the best opportunities on campus.

If finding campus work is proving challenging, there is one place that is always hiring: the cafeteria. Sometimes you have to be willing to take the less glamorous job, but making some of your own money can really give you independence.

Research from the National Center for Education Statistics indicates that students who work have better grades. There is other research that shows that kids who work a reasonable amount do better academically, because it helps them structure their time and is a good non-academic way to connect with people on campus.

Avoid scams

Companies and banks often see college students as impressionable consumers. When getting to campus, students should be careful about the products and services that are advertised to them.

In 2009, the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act banned banks from aggressively marketing credit cards and financial products on college campuses. However, this regulation does not stop banks from actively pursuing college students.

There are regulations that are still in effect but students still need to do a little bit of homework. A lot of times these companies have marketing deals with the campus that make them look like the 'school approved' product, but it doesn't necessarily mean that the school has made sure that those products are in fact the best products for their students.

Establish credit

One of the most important financial steps that students must make is one of the hardest —establishing a credit history. One of the factors in a credit score is the length of credit history. You want to get things started as soon as you can so that when you graduate, you already have some established credit.

It can be particularly difficult for students to get a credit card because they often have no previous financial record. Unless students have really significant part-time job income, it can be difficult to get an actual credit card on their own.

Once you have a credit card, it is important to stay on top of all payments. Being responsible and consistent with your account is the only way to make sure that a credit card pays off. It is also a crucial lesson for all students as they begin the next stage of their adult lives.
