I live in Naperville, il and wondering if i should drop my housing for next year and just commute. I know quite a few friends who are commuting from here(they are freshman also). It saves me money and it doesnt seem all to bad. Its about a 40min train ride to chicago.

What do u think? :thumbup: or :thumbdown:

You could totally take Metra. Why not?

I'd say it all depends what you want to do in your spare time. As far as I understand it (I'm from the NW burbs too), there's not a whole lot to entertain you in your spare time out in the suburbs. The people and fun things to do (in my opinion) are all downtown. However, if your main priority is to save money, living at home will definitely be cheaper. Just remember, Metra is good for "commuting" times (early morning and late afternoon), but not so great for times when people usually go out socially.

You save money but lose out on a lot of the "college experience". Your choice.
