Top Ten Things to Love About Living in the Central West End of St. Louis

10. Froyo

The first place that I ever spent money at while at college, and it was well worth it.  To imagine the quality of this soft-serve yogurt, think ice cream times ten.  They have flavors that range from pomegranate, cake batter, peach, and many more.  This little store is within walking distance from the STLCOP campus, which makes it even harder to resist.

9.  Forest Park

Just like Froyo, Forest Park is within walking distance from the STLCOP campus.  This park features a golf course, lake, beautiful scenery, and many biking/running trails.  I even witnessed fireworks being shot off from Forest Park!  This area is vast, and I look forward to exploring it more deeply in the future.

8.  St. Louis Sports Teams

The games of the NHL Blues, NFL Rams, and MLB Cardinals are only a short metro ride away.  As I write this, the Cardinals are currently representing the NL division in the World Series!

7.  Hans Wok

I just recently discovered this Chinese Restaurant.  For only five dollars I had my fill of wonderful delicacies.  I look forward to going their more often.

6.  Barnes-Jewish Hospital

Living next door to this great facility always find a way to inspire me.  I also was able to receive a flu shot…for free!  This place provides many great services that come in handy.

5.  Becker Library

If allowed access (and all STLCOP students are), Becker library is a wonderful study tool.  It is perfect for a long study session.

4.  Chase Theater

One of the things that I wish they had told me at Orientation was that this m0vie theater is only a short walk away from STLCOP’s campus.  The ticket price for a movie is only $6.50 for students!

3.  Metro Link

This transportation system makes getting from one area in St. Louis to another a breeze.

2.  Closeness of Everything

Since coming to STLCOP I have not missed my car one bit.  Everything that I could possibly want to venture to is either walking distance or a metro ride away.
