Whether you're an incoming freshman or already a College Station resident, choosing the best place to call home can become quite a challenge. Luckily here in College Station, we are privileged enough to be surrounded by many different choices to suit each one of our diverse lifestyles. As a Marketing Specialist for The Junction I've learned all about the new student living places uprising this coming summer. Let's hope this can be a guide to us all!



5. The Cottages

When I was a freshman The Cottages was the place to be! If you didn't live there, you probably weren't cool. And if you weren't spending Gig' Em Week in their pool, you were needing to reevaluate your life. The Cottages still makes the top charts in College Station. With Cottage style living as one of its main aspects, it makes for a pretty nice home while still having the benefits of living in an apartment complex.

4. U Club

In my opinion, U Club is the place to be as a freshman/sophomore. I wouldn't necessarily recommend living there past then. With that being said, I have always heard great things about U Club. Not once have I heard people having problems with their units or management. Overall, U Club is a great place to live. With its duplex style living, and convenient parking, why would you not want to live there? They also have an extremely nice clubhouse where they usually throw residential events such as Craw Fish boils.

3. The Retreat

The Retreat is a new student living complex coming this upcoming summer (August 2016). The Retreat also offers a cottage style living. Located right off of Harvey Mitchell Pkwy and near Wellborn, it is relatively close to campus. They over a lot of the same amenities that most of the top places in College Station offer (Sauna, pool, yoga room, tanning, clubroom, etc.) but one really cool amenity that sets them apart is their indoor, virtual Golf Simulator. Pretty cool right? From the looks of their pictures online, The Retreat seems as if it will look a lot like The Reserve that is also located in College Station.

2. The Barracks

Ahhhh, The Barracks, also known as one of my favorite student living communities in College Station. The Barracks is a pretty secluded student living neighborhood located down Rock Prairie and off of Wellborn. Most people consider this to be way too far out, as it is a few more extra miles to campus, but what most college students don't know, is all the awesome stuff located around it. Although it is a trek to town from The Barracks, you don't have to go too far to get food or any other services. If you take a right onto Wellborn from Rock Prarie, you will hit William D. Fitch, which has a ton of places for you to choose from. Located off of William D. Fitch is an HEB, Taco Bell, Laynes, Subway, Chick Fil A, Lowes, plus many more! Also coming soon in The Barracks will be their very own convenience store and a huge pool/clubhouse that they have been working on for a year which will include a restaurant, brewery, plus many more awesome amenities!

1. The Junction

The Junction is also an all new student living complex coming Summer of 2016. My prediction is that this is going to be the new happening place. Located directly next to The Cottages, it's about two miles from campus! If you love The Cottages pool, you'll love this even more. And if you don't love The Cottages pool, then you will love this pool. With it's Vegas styled pool and rockin' cabanas, how could you not want to call this place home? Another awesome aspect about The Junction is that they will have three different clubhouses. One workout clubhouse, one studying clubhouse, and lastly, one game room clubhouse. Now you don't have to deal with the overbearing noise that's coming from the guys that are way too into their ping pong game. With their Cottage style living and awesome amenities, why would you not want to call this place home?

Truett Cathy, I owe you my life.

If you love Chick-fil-A, you truly have withdrawals when you're away from it. You may suffer from these symptoms, just like I do.

1. No other breakfast will compare to CFA's.

2. No other fast food joint has hash brown's like CFA's.

3. When you go on vacation, you type in Chick-fil-A to see if there is one nearby.

4. If there isn't, you eat it as soon, I am talking, like, the second, you get back from vacation.

5. You truly don't understand how people "get tired of Chick-fil-A"

6. Besides the occasional change up on Sunday's, CFA is always your number choice of fast food.

7. You legitimately crave it more on Sunday's.

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.

If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
