College students living with neighbors who are decades older

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

For some college students here in eastern Iowa -- a unique living experience.

Three UNI students are living with people who are decades older than them. 

The students in their 20's are living at Western Home Communities in Cedar Falls. 

It's part of a program they applied for and got in!

The student will live there  for a year while studying at the university  nearby. 

Two of the three students have majors geared toward senior citizens. 

They all moved in this past weekend, and say so far the experience has been great. 

They say this is a lot quieter than dorms. 

Students pay 150 dollars a month in exchange for spending time with the residents.
