If you are planning on attending business school this fall, it might be time to start looking into places to live. You don’t want just any place, you want the best space possible for you! What does that really mean?
Here are some location ideas that can give you a head start on finding the perfect place for you.
The Perfect View
Picture this: you are working tirelessly on some econ homework and getting ready for a big presentation in your business class. You are feeling the pressure. You open the blinds to your room and stare out into the most breath-taking sunset view that you ever did see. You stare at it for a moment, taking in how gorgeous nature is, and then get back to work, basking in the view that is yours. This isn’t for everyone, but most people function better when they have a view that is aesthetically pleasing.
This view doesn’t have to be of nature either. You might prefer a place that has a view of the city, the place where you dream to work after finishing up school. Motivation like this can be essential when you are having one of those days where you just want to curl up in bed and never have to get up again.
The Perfect Vibe
Where you live is going to play a big part in how much work you get done. If you are in a place where everything is fast paced and loud and the neighbors party too much for their own good, chances are you aren’t going to get the focus you need. And if you are in a place that is so silent that you are starting to go crazy, well, that isn’t good either.
What you need is a good balance between the two, a place that is close enough to fun things so you can let off some steam, but also in its own little nook so you can get away when you need to and bust out some late night research.
If you love the hustle and bustle of the city, try and get a place close to a quaint coffee shop or that is in walking distance to a library or study center. This way, you still have your escape, but can enjoy where you live.
The Perfect Location
We all know that networking is everything, especially in the business world, so when you are choosing where to live around your school, pick a place where a lot of professionals also live, or at least pass through. You never know what kind of conversation you might strike up in your local Starbucks, and never know when an opportunity will hit you. The better you locate yourself, the better chances you have with this! It’s also good to be in a place where you can witness professionals in your field firsthand. This should motivate you to keep going, to get to where they are at some point in your life.
If you haven’t yet picked a school and are still trying to decide where to apply, why not look into ones, like San Jose State, that are close to hot spot locations, like Silicon Valley? You are going to end up in an area like this eventually for work, so if you can have a school that is already centered there, you’ll be golden.
The Perfect People
The people who you associate with are either going to make you or break you. If you are striving for success, you want to live around people who are also trying to make it, and will want the best for you. This could mean living around some friends that you know are hard workers, or look for areas that contain recent grads, so you can see where you will be in a few short months.
Partying is fun every once in a while, but you don’t want to be living around people who will distract you, or who will post Facebook photos of you that will hurt your chances of getting hired. If you live around people with a professional vibe, you too will embody it.
The Perfect Distance
You want to find a place that has a decent commute between school, work and fun activities. While this can be a bit trickier to find, it will be worth the effort of finding. This way, if you don’t have a car, you can walk or bike where you need to go without breaking too much of a sweat. Don’t want to look unprofessional now, do we? This way you can still get some exercise in to be of sound mind and body, and won’t have a hard time getting to where you need to go, thus always being on time and always looking like the professional you are.
When it comes to where you are living, there are a lot of things you should be looking for. It’s not just a place, it’s the space that can help you become all that you are meant to be and more. Good luck out there!
