Research of college and university students across the nation shows that students who live on campus are more satisfied with their collegiate experience, earn better grades and are more likely to graduate than their commuting peers.

College is a transitional time and, while it will be incredibly enriching, there will be times when you feel challenged. Live with people who are going through the same experiences as you, and know that the Residence Life staff are always available for assistance, advice or just to talk.
