The Advantage of Living On Campus
The decision to live on or off campus has been made easier by recent studies that are changing policies at universities across the country. More and more colleges, including the University of Idaho now have a freshman live-on requirement. Studies show that there is a large, significant improvement with student retention, grades and 4 year graduation rates for those who live on campus. The availability of student help, tutoring, Student Success programs, nutritious food choices, security and a positive social network all contribute to these statistics.
Opportunities for Upper Classmen
After the freshman year, sophomores and above have the option of continuing to live on campus or moving off campus. The same programs, positive influences, and lifestyle choices have just as much of an uplifting effect on upperclassmen as well. On campus living is comparable in price to living off campus with similar amenities and options. Opportunities are available to receive free accommodations for those sophomores and above who apply and are accepted as Resident Assistants (RA’s)
More Time Living and Studying
Studies show that those students that do move off campus tend to have lower GPA’s , take over 4 years to graduate and are more likely to drop out compared to their on-campus peers. Additionally, the extra time commitment to paying bills, grocery shopping, commuting, preparing and cleaning-up from meals, etc… all cut into study time.
