Now I understand that this has been talked about for a while; however, I could not really find the answer that I have in my mine so I was hoping that some people can help me out here!

My friends and I are attending ECU and we are currently looking for an apartment. We would really like to live in either Gladiolus Gardens or College Park.

In the beginning we were going with Gladiolus Gardens; however, there was no pre-lease for it. Instead there was a waiting list and we did not want to take the chance of ending up with no place to live if we were on the waiting list; so, we decided to pre-lease with College Park.

The workers there told us that whenever they call us to pick out our unit they will tell us if there is a spot open at that time and that we can switch to Gladiolus Gardens if we wish. I thought it was a fantastic Idea!

Honestly; I would love to live at Gladiolus Gardens. It's a lot cheaper and has more room than College park, but I have to admit the parking there does not look the best.

College Park is $470 for two bedrooms. Gladiolus Gardens use to be $435 for two bedrooms, but now it went down to $410. Its a great deal; however, I felt as if there's a catch to it. So here I am!

I would like ask anyone, preferably people who live in either College Park or Gladiolus Gardens, about the pros and cons of living in either complex.

1. Why do you think the price go down for Glad. gardens?
2. How would you rate the noise level of each complex? (such as, If people party next to you, will you be able to hear them? are the walls thick or thin?)
3. What are the things that you had to deal with most of the time? [ie. Something constantly breaking, etc...]
4. How would you rate the parking space? (if family comes to visit is there a place for them to park?)
5. Is there a lot of crime around the complexes?

I apologize for this novel of a thread. I just want to make sure to look into everything as much as possible before making any decisions over the summer. (: thank you so much!!

As a senior at ECU. I strongly advise you to not stay at either locations. If one had to be chosen, college park it is.
