Grab your car from the on-site parking and it’s an 8-minute drive to Texas State University, or you can cycle there in around 20 minutes. If you’d rather use public transport, you’re on the TSU Tram Bus Line, and there’s a covered bus stop right outside your building. When you want to explore farther afield, it’s a 35-minute drive to Austin.
Back home at Dakota Ranch, pick up a hot drink from the Starbucks coffee bar, and catch up with your friends about your day. Swim a few laps of the resort-style swimming pool, work up a sweat in the fitness center, or show off your skills on the sand volleyball court.
If you have an assignment due, work in comfort at your desk – there’s free high-speed internet, which comes in handy when you need to research a project. If you’d rather study with friends, take your laptop to the Wi-Fi business lounge, then print out your notes for free.
With work out of the way, meet friends for a cookout at the outdoor kitchen, then head inside to the game room to play pool. It’s easy to make friends at Dakota Ranch, thanks to regular residents’ events like pizza parties, karaoke nights and gaming tournaments.
If you’d rather have some quiet time, have a long, hot shower in your private bathroom, then choose a change of clothes from your spacious closet. Make dinner in your apartment kitchen, which is fully equipped with everything you need, including built-in appliances, a refrigerator with ice maker, and garbage disposal. Relax in the evening by curling up on the sofa to watch cable TV.
