Where will you live while in college?

Thursday, June 16, 2011
As a high school student, your first impressions of college may be all about living away from home. Maybe you have heard stories from an older sibling, or have an idea of what it will be like based on movies you have seen. Either way, you are excited by the possibilities.

However, just because higher education is generally associated with living in a dorm room, this does not mean that on-campus living is for everyone. In fact, a big part of your college search process requires you to think about what the best living situation for you is.

Before making the decision to live on-campus or to commute, you should know that each option has its fair share of pros and cons. For example, those who choose to live at home and commute to school may save money, but they might also be more isolated from their classmates and campus activities.

On the other hand, living in a dorm may mean lots of new social opportunities and a building full of new friends. However, too much college fun can derail one's purpose and have a negative impact on grades.

Mapping Your Future, a national public service organization, recommends that prospective college students identify their goals and priorities before enrolling in a school. Keeping this in mind may also help you make a decision as to where you would like to live. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800532309-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
