When you live on campus, you meet new people with different backgrounds, beliefs, and interests -- people who may become lifelong friends. You'll also learn about the diversity and cultural issues that surround you. These experiences, and your many friendships, are valuable in seeing you through the transition from student to working professional... and beyond!
