The On-Campus Experience
Residing on campus is about more than just having a place to stay: It's about finding a place to LIVE! You'll invest thousands of dollars in your education in tuition, books and fees. As a result of these investments, you'll gain a new range of career options upon graduation.
Living on campus is a similar sort of investment. The friendships you'll make, the additional opportunities for interaction with faculty, the convenience of being walking distance from classes and student services, the choice of social and fitness amenities - all contribute to the value-added experience of living on campus. Few choices you make in college can offer so much in enhancing your college experience as living on campus. Do you want to just go to class or are you going to college?
