Hi PharmDwt82, I would recommend to find a roommate in school especially P1. School can be very stressful and having a someone around to cheer you up and help you to study would be extremely helpful. I currently live with a P1 and a P3 and I help them study sometime and it has been a positive result in their test. In addition, Utah's weather is very unpredictable and it can be very dangerous to drive around and sometime your car might break down so having a person who can either carpool with you and rescue you during accident, it can be very helpful. As for location to live, you can chose whatever you like, the price varies from place to place. I currently live in South Jordan StoneBridge Apartment, you can afford a 3 bedrooms townhouse for a very affordable price ($1349). I would recommend you to ask your landlord how do they take care of the street during snow season because it can be very helpful in deciding where to live. There will be snow day and it will be hard to drive in the parking lot with icy road. As for the FB i can ask the current P1 liason to see when will they have the facebook group up.
