Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm currently looking for housing for fall 2006 and wanted to know what you thought about the glenwood and moon apartments

- Still looking

A: Dear Rental Person,

Moon seem to be good; I have a friend who lives there and thus far has had less complaints about them than he has about any other place he's lived. Glenwood has been recently renovated, but ... they have the reputation of being a place for newly non-freshmen, or of being kind of dumps that are cheap. Apparently, though, they're big enough to have five wards simply unto themselves, so...

Everyone I know who's lived in Glenwood either liked it for a year and then moved on or purely hated it and then moved on. So, they're transitory. This is all information from repuation only, not from personal experience living in either.

PS. Drive down 700 E/500 N and you will see for rent signs out in various places, not because they're bad, but because people are going home for the spring and summer. (personally, living in that area south of campus, while reputedly a party area, isn't. Party places are more to the southeast than directly south by a few blocks.)
A: Dear Home-Seeker,

I've heard Moon Apartments described as "a hole," and Glenwood referred to as "Glenhood." Now Glenwood recently remodeled so I don't know if I'd agree with that last one, but there's more to throw into the mix.

A: Dear Looking,

I think Glenwood was only recently remodeled on the outside.
