I live right off of the University City Loop (the Loop), close to Washington University’s Danforth Campus. Although it can sometimes feel a little isolating to live somewhere other than the Central West End, I love almost everything about where I live. Not only can I walk to the Loop, where there is great shopping and food, but I also am near Forest Park, which is about a block away. It is very convenient to be able to use the undergraduate and law school libraries, and the amazing new fitness complex on the Danforth Campus is also open to medical students. Luckily for me, transportation to campus is also incredibly easy. I usually take the MetroLink, which is a seven-minute walk from my house and has a stop on the medical school campus. The best part about using the Metro system is that it is free for Washington University students!
