Living on campus is one of the most extraordinary experiences you can have. In fact, studies show that residence hall living can have a positive impact on grades. And lifelong friends often start out as roommates. Says one student: “The most fun I have is when I’m hanging out playing pool in the dorm with my friends.”
By living on campus, you gain a feeling of being “connected” to the university, and you are surounded by women who can relate to the excitement, and perhaps apprehension, that you are feeling. With each new year, the residence halls take on new personalities. Women shape their communities and develop a living and learning environment that is unique and supportive.
