Hey. I go to MSU and I live in the Quads. They're not bad for smart, quiet kids, but if I had a chance to do it again, I would definitely get on an OP floor at Roskie. Most of my kick ass friends live there.
The skiing is wonderful and it has been a joy to ski the ridge all year. The snow hasn't been great this year, but I have had some of the best powder days of my life up there. The pass is still a kiddo pass until you're 19 at Bridger Bowl, which is also a plus.
Party scene? ... yeah. Plenty of that going around town. Not that I partake in those drunken activities.
And I hear Moonlight has a good like 10 day pass which isn't too bad. I haven't been all year and I don't feel like I'm missing much since everyone I know only has a Bridger pass anyways.
Oh and the school is great too. I'm a biochemistry major and it's definitely challenging enough, but I have a lot of spare time to ski and watch movies. I'd say I skied anywhere from 2 to 4 days/week all semester long. Livin the dream.
I hope you come here, teleak, because it is totally worth all that extra studying for that SAT score.
