I know that some students (pretty many) live in this area and really like it. It is located right off of Highway 40 and is very close to the St. Louis Galleria, many fitness centers and restaurants, stores like Best Buy, Target, Walmart and the only Whole Foods and Trader Joes in the area. It is a very nice part of town and is only about 20 minutes away from school (without traffic on 40 of course). If you are interested in this area, there are many smaller owned buildings that are rented out, so I would suggest driving around or checking the St. Louis Post-Dispatch For Rent section.
