Thanks for the info. I have a question about living arrangements. Firstly, I am married with a 3 year old daughter. When we chose our house to rent, we wanted to get a good neighborhood and especially a yard. Because rentals in Pikeville are hard to find, we settled on a house about 15-20 minutes from the campus. Its about 15 minutes to exit 23 and another couple to get to the parking garage.
My question is --- how often are you on campus outside of normal Monday-Friday hours? Do you have to frequently make trips in the evenings/nights/weekends to campus? I am fine with the commute if its mainly Monday-Friday or even a weekend day as well. Im just afraid there may be times when I need to go on campus at night or on the weekends for short trips to study, lab, etc. Trips for all day or something wouldnt be bad but are there times when you go to campus several times a day for short amount of times?
If you had a 15-20 minute commute, how would this have affected things for you? I just want to make sure before I get in the thick of things that we didnt mess up by choosing a place a little further away from campus. But, we also really wanted a decent yard for our daughter because she loves it outside and we are happy where we are renting now.
