You know what I would love to see or find at UW? A commuter house. One similar to those Japanese hotels in that you could take a nap for two hours and take a shower and one similar to a workplace in that you could use a fridge and a kitchen. They could have lockers so you could store your workout gear and a couple of changes of clothes. Sometimes I would love to just see if someone will let me rent their guest room during the day only. I don't need to keep anything there, just crash every once in a while so I can avoid my days being from 6 am to 10 pm.

I do have a couple of serious questions about commuting, since that's kind of a pipe dream (if it's not, PLEASE contact me immediately):

- What's up with microwaves? Are there any located around campus that can be used to nuke lunch?

- Water. What's it like in taps and fountains around campus? Can I fill my Sigg bottle without worrying about crap-tasting water?

Basically I'm trying to save money on lunch and buying water/coffee, so I'm trying to figure out the best plan of action. Seasoned commuters, help me out!

Hi all! I know you're probably sick of constant questions from potential incoming freshman, but I have a few.

1. Do any of you have any experience with the Speech and Hearing Sciences major? Or, hell, heard anything about it -- good or bad?

2. How difficult do you find it, in general, to maintain a good GPA at the UW? (I know it depends on classes and major, of course, but I'm just curious what your feelings/experiences are.)

3. Are the dorms really as bad as everyone says? I took a tour, but our tourguide just walked us around outside and didn't show us any dorms or classrooms or anything. Also, for those of you who chose to live off-campus as freshmen: do you think it had an impact on your social life at the UW?

Thank you in advance!
