graphic by Alex Parris Burger Boy is a no-nonsense burger joint located on North St. Mary’s Street. The tiny little A-frame building feels like something out of a TV show. It is very cute, and like the design of the structure — which also features a drive-thru — the food here is satisfying and simple. The shakes are frothy and yummy. I personally recommend the chocolate, but I’m just a chocolate lover. The menu at...

graphic by Alex Parris Rosemont is the ideal off-campus housing for seniors. Within walking distance to campus and not as expensive as City Vista, it’s a winning combination. I’m currently living in a three-bedroom apartment in Rosemont with three of my best friends. We’ve loved being able to walk and bike to campus and the Olmos Park H-E-B. Some of the things to love about Rosemont are the cute swimming pools, the nice office workers...
