WHAT TO DO WITH AN EXTRA ROOM OH, SO ONE OF YOUR SUITEMATES IS STUDYING ABROAD THIS SEMESTER? THAT’S TOO BAD, BECAUSE YOUR SUITE OR APARTMENT WILL BE A LOT LESS EXCITING WITHOUT THE EXTRA PERSON. OR NOT!
TYLER FRIEDMAN STAFF WRITER
Now, you have a free room to use however you want. After you “find a way in” to the room, you can begin your planning. But what shall become of this extra suite space?
A theater: Lower the bed as far as you can and push it up against one side of the wall as a couch. Then go to Best Buy, invest in a projector, set it up and voila… you now have your own private theater. Project movies, TV shows or video games on the largest wall and set up extra pillows or chairs to increase the sitting space. Now instead of schlepping down to the Tivoli or another movie theater, you can see shows on the big screen right next door. Add popcorn or gum under the seats for that extra cinema vibe.
A club: Put the bed in the common room (hello, extra sofa space) and suddenly you have an empty room with tons of space for dancing around and raving. Get all the Christmas lights you can find and hang them up all around the room in preparation for Friday night. Then turn the desk into a disc-jockey station, turn on the strobe lights and invite your whole floor to party.
Just hope you don’t live above the faculty fellows!
A band room: Move out the wooden furniture, bring in the drum set and the amps, hang up sound barriers to keep in the noise, get a couple guitar stands in there and get ready to jam. Maybe there’s not that much space, but hey, you have to start somewhere! Besides, everyone is tired of hearing about bands that start in small garages; small-dorm-room bands will be the next big thing to hit the music world. Also, if you have a balcony, you can step outside and do your best impression of a Beatles rooftop concert. Once again, hope you don’t live above the faculty fellows, unless they’re into that old time rock ’n’ roll.
A dining room: How cute! Get the rest of your suitemates and any other friends together and have a nice family dinner. Use the desk (or steal a table from the study room down the hall) and set up a dinner spread. Plus, you have extra bed sheets to use as a tablecloth. Whether the meal is Easy Mac, pasta with meat sauce, or an allout spread of turkey and mashed potatoes, the dining room will make your stay at Wash. U. much homier.
An art gallery: Who needs the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art when you have your own right next door? Simply remove all the furniture and use the walls to hang lovely works of art. The barrenness of the room will only add to the museum-esque feeling, allowing you to curate different exhibits. You can also add your own security system by hiring a friend to remind visitors: “Do Not Touch!”
A “playroom”: There’s no need to get into much detail here. Keep the bed. Keep the sheets. Keep whatever you like to have around (no judgment need be passed). Finally, there’s an effective solution to the sexile. For more information, see “Fifty Shades of Grey” or the romance novel of your choice.
A trash room: This is not entirely advisable or sanitary, but for those out there who are truly lazy, you could use the extra room to store trash. Yes, it will smell bad. Yes, it will probably attract some maggots. Yes, everyone who comes into your suite will hate you; you may even hate yourself a little bit. But on the bright side, you’ll never have to walk those extra steps to the trash room down the hall ever again.

HOW TO COOK IF YOU CAN’T: A culinary guide to apartment living SARAH HANDS MANAGING EDITOR
Living off campus is exciting. Your resident adviser does practically nothing, you’re within walking distance (most likely) of some semiexotic chain pan-Asian takeout restaurants and you are (sort of) FINALLY living it up in the city like a real adult. But what happens when you get sick of the pan-Asian takeout and Noodles & Co. macaroni and cheese and your teeny tiny meal plan dries up from all the half-and-halfs you keep buying during your inebriated pilgrimages to the South
40? Looks like you’re going to have to finally touch that little kitchenette—no, microwaving popcorn chicken doesn’t count. Cooking can be scary, especially if you’re used to having it done completely for you. You don’t have to be Gordon Ramsay to make tasty, varied and (relatively) healthy food, though. Here are three easy sort-of recipes to try for the launch of your culinary debut.
1. Egg-drop soup Take your egg. Take your bowl. Take your fork. Crack your egg into the bowl. Whip
your egg with your fork until it looks gross. Boil some chicken broth in a pot. Take your fork again and dip it into your gross egg. Pull it up so there’s a little string of gross egg hanging down. Drop that string of gross egg into the boiling broth. Realize that this is going to take too long and just kind of pour your gross egg little by little into the broth while stirring simultaneously. The gross egg should turn into beautiful ribbons of non-gross cooked egg. If you’re feeling fancy, throw in some green onions and curry powder. Or cut up a real onion and some

carrots and put that in with your gross egg to make a non-gross egg-drop soup.
2. Ramen Yeah, I know. Ramen is whatever. Bear with me, though. This is a staple of college diets for a reason, that reason being its cheap price, eternal shelf life and easy preparation. By itself, this quick meal offers very few nutrients and way too much sodium. With a few easy and effortless additions, however, you can easily turn ramen into an actual meal.
HOUSING GUIDE 2016 STUDENT LIFE 9
CHANNEL YOUR AUNT MARY AND CUT UP SOME BRUSSELS SPROUTS, SHALLOTS, AND MUSHROOMS. BRUSSELS SPROUTS ARE PRONOUNCED ‘BRUSSEL SPROUT’ UNLESS YOU WANT TO SOUND PRETENTIOUS. THEY ARE ALSO GROSS. WE ARE GOING TO MAKE THEM LESS GROSS. SHALLOTS ARE WHAT OLD RICH PEOPLE EAT, BUT WE ARE YOUNG AND POOR AND FREE AND WE WILL EMULATE THE UPPER CLASS IN OUR EASY CUISINE.
Add some meat to the broth, like chicken breast (cook it first), slices of roast beef lunchmeat or even shrimp if you want to be super fancy. Add some egg. Add it in the gross-egg-to-pretty-ribbons fashion as illustrated in sort-of recipe No. 1, or fry it and just put it on top of your ramen bowl. Make the yolk kind of runny so you can stab it and watch the yellow bleed out like roadkill. Add some vegetables, like onions and mushrooms and carrots, and add them while you’re boiling the broth so they are cooked and not gross. Only use the noodles. Throw out the spice packet. Use real broth from the store so you don’t get heart disease, unless you’re into that. Add curry powder. Always add curry powder. And sriracha. If you’re feeling sad and you want to be unhealthy, make the noodles without the spice packet. Drain. Mix with cheese until the cheese is melted. Now you have the saddest macaroni and cheese in the world. Go cry about what you have done.
3. Roasted vegetables Channel your Aunt Mary and cut up some Brussels sprouts, shallots, and mushrooms. Brussels sprouts are pronounced “Brussel sprout” unless you want to sound pretentious. They are also gross. We are going to make them less gross. Shallots are what old rich people eat, but we are young and poor and free and we will emulate the upper class in our easy cuisine. Mushrooms are great. Take your chopped sprouts and mushrooms and put them on a cookie sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil and some salt and pepper like you are on a cooking show. Add some chopped garlic if you are fancy, but if you are real, add garlic powder. Put that tray into your oven at 450 degrees for like half an hour. Meanwhile, put your shallots into a ton of oil on a skillet and fry them until they are almost burned. Take the pan of veggies out and mix it with the shallots. Impress your friends by making them think that they are eating healthy food when really they are eating really nasty, delicious amounts of oil to disguise the fact that Brussels sprouts are gross.

WHY I CHOSE GREEK HOUSING PETER DISSINGER STAFF WRITER
Fraternity houses aren’t for everyone, and I never thought that I was built for it. Really, until last month, I thought that I would happily take a pass on living in my fraternity’s on-campus house. But as we all know, housing circumstances can change on a whim, and within a few days of getting my lottery number, my dreams of living in an on-campus apartment (or in the Village) dissipated. So my story may look like one of necessity, but, now that I have officially signed a Greek housing contract with Residential Life, I can say that I’m incredibly satisfied with the decision I made. I wanted to be on-campus as a junior; it was a decision I made at the beginning of the year and never wavered from. Arguably, Upper Row has the best location of any housing on the Danforth Campus: it is a short jog over to the gym, three minutes from the Danforth
University Center and the Village and close to the majority of my classes. With immediate access to the Snow Way parking garage, it is also an ideal launching pad to get off-campus. As someone who likes to minimize the time spent traveling between places on campus, my fraternity house gives me a great home base to be close to just about everything. Fraternity rooms also cost significantly less than other on-campus options for juniors. A single in Lopata House or the Village House will be priced at $11,938, the average single in the Millbrook apartments will go for $12,500, and a bed in the renowned Village East will cost $14,420. In contrast, a single in the Theta Xi fraternity costs $10,722 for the upcoming year. The savings may not seem significant given the large price tag of attending Washington University, but, for students struggling to make ends meet, Greek housing can be a welcome respite. Even considering
standard fraternity dues, the price tag comes in lower than that of a single in Lopata, but that might not even be a problem. Many fraternities will give discounts on dues for members choosing to live in the house, so savings could end up ranging from $1,200$4,000, depending on the fraternity and the backup housing option you have chosen. More generally, the argument for Greek housing centers around the social aspects of living in a fraternity house. There are constant shenanigans to join in on, fun traditions that you are centrally a part of and your living room is the central hangout spot for all of the brothers. It’s a lot like a sleepaway camp cabin, recreating much of the same nostalgia that you got staying up late with your bunkmates and counselors talking about life and playing card games. There is rarely a dull hour in a fraternity house. You can come back from studying on-campus and hangout
with your friends on a whim. Think of it this way: the house is a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity, unless you somehow find a bachelor’s pad that exists solely to recreate the collegiate Greek life experience. Of course, this same proposition could drive some insane, especially if you need peace and quiet on a regular basis. The limited access to laundry, the ominously “off” smells, the less “updated interiors” (Wash. U. isn’t spending millions of dollars to upgrade Greek housing) or maybe the shared bathrooms would be the point of no return for you. It was hard to come to terms with a lot of these cons, which can’t all be ignored. But I think, at some point this year, I realized that as I get ready to go into the workforce, I need a chance to let loose and get outside my comfort zone. I know I won’t always be able to keep everything in order, and it will definitely feel cramped at times, but hey, that’s all a part of the fun.
