Housing stuff is coming up, and I hear it's kinda competitive (everything at this school seems to be). I want to be sure about my choices. It seems there's no complete profile of the houses anywhere. I got the app on my phone and watched the housing videos, where I learned some pretty good info about the dorms, like which were coed and how they're organized. So here are some questions for people living in the red bricks:
How many RA's are there in a building?
Is it possible to move the furniture around?
What's up with the "no powerstrips" rule? How strict is that?
I heard also that the restrictions on food-appliances isn't actually that strict. Can I bring a waffle iron, toaster, or rice cooker?
Is there a full kitchen anywhere in the buildings?
Is there a chance to party it up and get inebriated?
Is there anyplace to smoke something not necessarily legal in Cal Poly?
What do you do about having sex in the dorms? (I'm a chick, if that makes any difference)
What is the weather like? How warm does it get?
How warm are the dorms themselves? Is there heating or A/C?
Do you find you get along with your roommate better because you have a similar major?
