In general, it's a lot cheaper to stay on campus because of taxi fare, entrance fees, and everything else. Owning a car is expensive, but so is public transportation or taxis! The school is just far enough out of town to be too far to walk, but just close enough that it is only a 20 minute bus ride in to town.
I said I would feature a different place each day... here are some pictures from the bar! Unfortunately I took them at night so they are not great quality.
