Academic Success • Students who live on campus can fully dedicate themselves to their academics. • You can choose classes irrespective of the time they are offered, participate in study groups, visit and form relationships with professors, study in the library whose resources can come in handy at any point while preparing for exams or writing papers, and participate in campus-based academic projects and support communities. • Living in campus housing, students can set you own study schedules, focus on your studies, and not lose time commuting.
  6. 6. Community Engagement • College is much more than academics. • It is a time for you to • immerse yourselves in clubs and organizations, • attend university and student events, • meet students from all around the world with similar and varied interests.
  7. 7. More Community Engagement • Living on campus, you can explore all different kinds of campus activities and get engaged in internships and outreach projects. • You can discover and pursue your passions, giving insight into your strengths and prospective career choices.

  9. 9. Getting Involved • Jazmin, UCSB, for example, joined a multi-cultural sorority, got a job at the community teen center, and did a lot of community service in the local community because she was immersed in her college experience by living in the dorms. • Mitzi, UCSC, is part of cultural support groups and a major outreach project to support Latinos in College. • Eliana, UC Davis, volunteers at a local clinic.

  11. 11. Personal Development • Living in the dorms, students get to meet all different kinds of people and socialize with them through the week and weekends by attending campus sporting and artistic events. • During breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the dorms, they can have amazing conversations with diverse peers.
  12. 12. JOHANA, U PENN, CLASS OF 2014
  13. 13. Safety • Students are much safer living on college campuses than they are commuting to college campuses. • The majority of campuses have resident assistants who help monitor the very secure dorms and advise students. They also have 24 hour campus security officers who can escort them to different locations on campus. • Parents can still check in on you via Skype, email, texting, phone calls, and visits.
  14. 14. Lifelong Friends and Networks •Living on campus, students meet people that become their lifelong friends and join a community that helps them develop lifelong networks.
