PhD student & Research Fellow
I am a student, which means little money. I joined an illegal coop because it was the best house in this entire town! As an international scholar, I find myself missing home, family and friends, and my Boulder home provides that sense of family I am missing so much. Plus, my housemates are the most tolerant, open-minded, generous, and fun people I have ever lived with. Coops are not just about saving money, but about the spirit of sharing experiences, food, travels, and making new friends all the time, being supported in our personal and professional endeavors. It’s precious!
