If you end up living in the Meridian you probably waited until the last minute to find an apartment in State College. I hope you've been saving your pennies to stay in this overpriced hole. Although the Meridian is close to a Loop stop, it's convenient location downtown really isn't all the convenient. Find a better place to live- it's noisy, fire alarms go off a lot, and the college students piss in the elevators all the time. People don't respect this building at all. The best part about the Meridian are the maintenance people- they're very friendly and helpful.
