We think that living on campus is a no-brainer. The list of benefits is a mile long, and growing every day! When you decide to live on campus you are given the opportunity to make life-long friendships, have the best commute to class, share in a learning living space, and so much more. Being more involved in campus activities enhances your college experience, and living on campus puts you in-the-know for all campus activities.
