I was forced to get Zone nutriton bars (14 g protein), as there was little else to choose from at Costco. The protein in the bars comes from soy. Is soy protein good and in any way comparable to whey?
I would try to stay away from eating soy on a regular basis.

Power clean: * - 130 - 160
Snatch: * - 95 - 105
But it doesn't sound too serious. I can't mix up shakes in my dorm, so I'll use the 24 bars I have for after workouts. Later, I'll buy protein bars from the school stores or maybe something else from Costco.

Why can't you mix shakes in your dorm? I did it all 4 years in undergrad. Get a mini fridge, keep your milk in there and get a shaker cup or a blender. Not a real big deal. Lot less expensive than tons of protein bars.
How does whey protein taste with just milk?
What do you think of pre-made protein shakes? (read:myoplex)
the taste will more depend on the brand, but I think it tastes very good with milk.
Just go to your local GNC or Vitamen world and get a shaker cup there
I would recommend just getting a shaker bottle, or you can pour milk in a glass, add a scoop of protein, and then mix it with a spoon for 30 seconds, it'll work just as good.
Ready to drink protein shakes are great. I get some when I'm going to be on the road for awhile or something.
For long term use, as the above poster noted, they are expensive. Most of them will cost you a couple bucks per shake when you figure it out, so multiply that by 2 or 3 times a day over the length of the school year, its pretty expensive. If money isn't a problem though, that'd be fine.
I used a blender in my dorm room. To be honest, it was against the rules but I had a george foreman grill and an electric skillet as well as the blender. I just kept them in my closet and used them when I needed to. If you and your roomate get along, he'll get used to it. You figure the blender is only on for a few seconds and you're good to go.

Go for the blender.
Mix protein with milk.
Don't eat soy if you can help it.

Thanks for the advice. I'll have to use the bars now, and over winter break I'll get whey powder from costco, and buy a shaker cup, or maybe a small blender. The only problem with the blender would be having to wash it in the bathroom sink.
then get shakers. its not that big of a deal really. you can buy them online and have them shipped to you.
yeah I washed mine in the bathroom sink to. water is water bud.
that costco protein will give you some nasty bloating too.
