In these days, housing problems is one of the worst problems, not only for Seattle central students, but also all students who are university or college student in United States. According to homeguides.sfgate.com, students suffer from getting house or apartments in terms of cost and space. Apartments near around our school, especially, are more expensive than other schools. What is a worse, international student face more severe problems that housing cost is getting increased. Of course, housing cost becomes cheaper if apartment is a little further from Seattle central. However, students have to abandon regarding accessibility and convenience which is also important for students. Dormitory could be one of the best alternatives, but it has very limited capacity and it is expensive as apartments near our school.
As I mentioned above, housing problem should be solved as soon as possible. To do that, school has to consider how to solve cost and small dormitory.
To be specific, regarding cost aspect, apartments which are located near Seattle central are so expensive. For example, if we walk 20 minutes via Madison Street, there is an apartment called Summit at Madison Park. For one bedroom, it costs around $1450. However, near our school, apartments for one bedroom cost around $1700. This example shows that there is obviously gap. However whole university or college district in United States have similar troubles with solving this expensive housing cost near each school, school should provide some solution.
To solve this problem, school has to contract with apartments which are near our school so that students can get discount when students contract with that apartments. For instance, as students pay rent for a month; school pays for those apartments for a month in terms of how much students get discount. Other way is that the government provide subsidy so that students are able to get discount for rent.
Some people might say that it is too hard for school to accept this proposal because there are lots of students in our school. In addition, since school got limited amount of subsidy, school might face a problem regarding finance. Also, homestay will be one of the better options to get cheaper place to live in.
However, I assert that I am not saying this privilege should be for all Seattle central students. I mean this privilege will be for several students like who gets A on his class. If doing so, not only students can get their apartments cheaper, but also they will study harder to get cheaper apartments. Homestay also has a problem. Here is my anecdote: From Summer quarter to now, I’ve done...
