The university experience goes way beyond the classroom. Here are a few reasons to consider living on campus:

You鈥檙e at the heart of everything. You鈥檙e never more than a few minutes away from classes. Activities. Dining. Athletic and fitness facilities. Common areas. And everything else 嫩草影院 has to offer.

More Flexibility

It鈥檚 so much easier to schedule the classes you want without having to worry about transit schedules and commuting hours. Use newfound time for activities. Extra study. Maybe even a few extra winks of sleep!

Sense of Community

Being a resident provides added opportunity to be involved in 嫩草影院鈥檚 uniquely diverse social and educational community. You鈥檒l build lifetime friendships, and you鈥檒l grow both personally and socially.

Better Grades

Statistics show that resident students get better grades, are almost twice as likely to make the Dean鈥檚 List and are more likely to graduate on time. And on-time graduation means less college debt!

When you add up the cost of off-campus housing (rent, utilities, food, commuting), you might be surprised that an 嫩草影院 residence and meal plan might be the way to go. Housing grants are available for qualified students.
