Solution: College students should combat the effects of stress and lack of sleep by maintaining a healthy diet and getting plenty of sleep. Washing your hands often will go a long way to keeping you healthy as well. Maintain clean spaces, disinfect your phone, keyboard, mouse, door handles on a regular basis. Should you get sick take a trip to the school nurse and get treated right away so you will be doing your part not to infect your roommates and fellow students.
After listening to the judge, it appears the belief system of “abuse only happens in bad homes” is still an accepted paradigm. People who make a lot of money, live in Christian homes, are intelligent, and appear to be doing well, shouldn’t have cases of domestic violence.
Always thoroughly inspect the student housing you’re visiting. Don’t just walk around the rooms or look at the space. Ensure the safety of the door locks; a deadbolt would be ideal. Make sure to check the windows if they open and shut properly. Check if the faucets are leaking and try to turn on all the bathroom fixtures to see if everything is in working order. Scrutinize the condition of the ceilings, the walls, and the floors; creaky floorboards or broken walls are, naturally, red flags. Look for signs of water damage or mold as well.
Our court systems appear to put everything into a box and classify it. I could tell from listening to the judge and lawyers from both sides, the issue of domestic violence was never explored in Lisa’s death. Kevin’s anger was discussed but not in relation to the physical abuse, which ultimately led to her death. Right before the judge read his sentence, he said to Kevin that this case was odd to him. Normally, when people commit these kinds of crimes, there’s a form of chemical dependency (alcohol or drugs) contributing to the action behind the crime. Kevin didn’t fit the “profile” of what the judge was used to seeing in his courtroom. Kevin was an intelligent man and the judge couldn’t understand why Kevin could do something as heinous as this crime.
Read your lease before you sign it. You don’t need a law degree to look over unfavorable stipulations over noise, guests who stay overnight, the number of people allowed to live in the house, and repairs on appliances and other fixtures in the off-university apartments. Landlords may also include policies on subletting. Make sure that the stipulations are within reason. If you don’t agree with one or two policies, try to negotiate with the landlord. If the landlord doesn’t budge on a few policies, it might be best to move on to another listing. You don’t want to be tied down to a student housing you’ll have problems with in the long run.
For less than 00 we were able to add a removable wall and door into the large dining-room creating a fifth bedroom and a third bathroom in the basement. The basement became a ‘couples suite’.

Let’s consider an average week in the life of a college student. There are 168 hours in a week. Our average student is in class for 15 hours each week, studies another 15 hours, sleeps an average of 56 hours and is eating 14 hours for a total of 100 hours. That leaves 68 hours each week of free time, nearly 10 hours each day.
