Title: Perkins Green III: proposed married and graduate student housing
Author: Lin, Chou-tein
Abstract: When I first came to Rochester Institute of Technology (R.I.T.) to study in the graduate program, I settled in an apartment supported by the school, because I was a new-comer and knew nothing about the surroundings. Racquet Club, a housing complex five minutes from school, is a 307-unit-townhouse-apartment, student housing area with three tennis courts and one large grass slope as its open space. I was very satisfied by this beautiful scene and thought it would be a good place to live and study. Later, however, I found sometimes, especially on weekends, there was too much noise from parties taking place in adjacent apartments; band concerts taking place (or rehearsing) in an apartment, drinking, talking, and amazingly loud dance music, not to mention occasional fights. These behaviors piqued my curiosity at first, but later on really irritated me. Perhaps I had homework to do; perhaps I would like to enjoy a movie on TV, to listen to my favorite classical music, or to have a chat with my house-mates and have a cup of tea; but I was bothered by the noise. Fortunately, during the weekdays this normally didn't happen because everyone else was very busy.
