One of our favorite things about living in New England is how quickly you can travel between mountains and sea. Across landscapes, New England offers the best of small-town life.

Living on campus is a weird thing to do as a graduate student — you’ve already 'done' the undergraduate dorm thing and living in a residence hall can feel childish in some ways.

Only private, single-use bathrooms for you, here on out!
