<p>Based on the following 'personality profile, which housing arrangements might be the right fit for me?<br>
I am an incoming freshman-straight, male music major. My paramount objective at IC is to become the best muscian I can be. I am completely focused & clear on my future goals. (I have had these goals since I was 13).
I am a reserved guy at first & not at ease initiating new friendships (just doesn't come natural for me). I make friends easier with people I often cross paths with such as classmates, teammates or club members. I am more comfortable with extroverts who make the effort to form a friendship. Fortunately, people want to be friends with me - they seek me out because they sense that I'm nice (I am) & different but in a 'cool' way. After I know them a while & still want to be friends, then I can lay back. Once a friend, always a friend- 99% retention rate.
I don't smoke, drink or do drugs & don't regularly hang out with those who do. I am in no way a nerd either (I am a NYC streetwise guy). I might be able to tolerate a party dorm that isn't too rowdy but why present myself with negative "temptations"? Again, my first & only priority is learning and practicing until I physically and mentally have to call it a day. I obviously put a high premium on solid sleep too. At the same time, I do want to have a social life. Are the dorms an all-or-nothing type of setup?<br>
I am bringing my SUV if walking across campus becomes a problem for me or living off campus is best suited for me. I am legally entitled to a disabled parking permit although I have never needed or applied for one as of yet. I hear parking on campus is near impossible.
Please offer as much info. as you can and be specific with names of dorms & apts. Where are they located? Which are coed dorms?
Are dining choices different &/or better depending on where you live? Single,double rooms, suites, etc.?
As a reserved musician, are there certain programs or clubs you would recommend to do some networking?</p>
<p>Thanks to all for your advice.</p>
