Streetcar returns to university area

  • Did you know that, at least based on the single and double prices listed around this time last year on the Financial Aid site, Res Life makes a free thousand dollars a room in Beiver and Buddig when two people live in each room? Makes you wonder about how much they really care about the well-being of underclassmen.

    The absolute cheapest meal plan that Loyola offers to students living on campus comes to 3,776. If you stay off campus for a full year, by comparison, that is a monthly food budget of $314.66 cents. For $315 a month, you can feast like a king every night.

    Likewise, the cheapest livable room on campus, a double in Beiver, comes to $5754 for the school year. For that much for a full year, it averages at $479.50 in monthly rent. But if you only assume you're paying for the nine months you're actually allowed in the room (end of August to mid December, mid January to mid May), it actually comes out to a monthly rent of $639.33. You can rent a very, very nice apartment for that much, far better than the cramped, shared rooms you get on campus. For the rent on a suite room in Carrolton, you can practically have an entire house to yourself out in Lakeview.

    Don't encourage Res Life in their racketeering. Get your money's worth. Anonymous

Construction has ended in front of Loyola University and Tulane University on the St. Charles Avenue streetcar line. The Regional Transit Authority started performing preventative maintenance on the streetcar line in front of the two universities early last year. During the construction, RTA provided buses to frequent the St. Charles route. Although the streetcars are now available in front of the universities, passengers are only able to ride until they reach St. Charles and Louisiana Avenue where the construction resumes.
