If you have a single room and noise cancelling headphones, you can live on a porno set or on frat row and it wouldn't bother your studying.
This reminds me for some reason of the people terrified of Greeks (fraternity/sorority folk) in college. The idea in undergrad was being around these people would destroy your academic life because they'd throw parties and be drunk all the time. Of course, this was patently false. I know because I was in a fraternity. I almost never drank at home, and never threw a party at my place. It was always quiet enough for people to study. I never studied at the library, I did it at my place.Similarly, you guys are talking about undergrads like they are going to be drunk 24/7, hot box your living room, have sex in the kitchen, and scream at you if you tell them not to. Very few undergrads are like that. Also, you won't be living with freshmen. If anything it'll be seniors, and they'll be over that phase if they were ever into it at that point. If you have a single room and noise cancelling headphones, you can live on a porno set or on frat row and it wouldn't bother your studying. Most undergrads stay awake past 12am to watch tv or surf the internet... neither are all that noisy. If you are a light sleeper, maybe there will be a problem but if not then who cares. This 'avoid undergrads' thing seems like uber paranoia... now I know why we all thought grad students were dillweeds in undergrad.
