Although these aren’t a “need” per say when it comes to your college living arrangements, these amenities are nice to have around. Amentias like a pool, game room and a clubroom with flat-screen TVs aren’t necessary to getting through college, but they make the process a whole lot more fun.
College is one of the biggest stepping stones of life. For some, the transition can be rough. Many important decisions have to be made, one of those being housing arrangements. The decision to dorm or commute can change one’s perspective at college immensely. They are very different; dorming is not for everybody; commuting is not for everybody. Commuting and dorming differ in independence, money, transportation, and experiences.
Most students live on campus in one the six housing halls. Bayliss-Henninger and Tanner Halls are for first year students only. All first year students are required to stay in these halls for the first year. After freshman year students are allowed to stay in any of the other 4 housing halls. If students do not live on campus they rent a house in the surrounding area or perhaps an apartment(Western Illinois University).
The focus of this paper is to dispel a common view that community colleges do not provide on-campus housing and to provide greater insights into the types of community colleges that provide on-campus housing, the typical student who resides in on-campus housing, a guide to various California community colleges that provide on-campus housing, and the impact that on-campus housing has on student learning outcomes, financial gains for community colleges that provide on-campus housing, and an overview of the lack of data in the area of not only on-campus housing in community colleges, but community colleges at large. According to Cohen and Brawer (2008) access to student housing is one of the fundamental dissimilarities between public
Colleges have always encouraged their students to live on campus, especially freshman. This is for the reason that living on campus allows student to encounter new cultures, participate in organizations, and reach academic heights. For example, Tarleton State University states that “Living on campus will enable [the student] to interact with diverse people enriching [their] educational experience and will provide convenient access to professors and academic resources the campus offers. In addition, on-campus students are more likely to become and stay involved in clubs and organizations” (Tarleton State University, 2016). Along with the notion that students residing on campus are likely to reach academic heights, a study conducted at the University of North Dakota during the fall semester of 1966-1967
College In the 1920 was very different. In the 1920s the College felt very luxurious to students from less affluent homes. There was a lot of food and there was a large staff of maids who worked very long hours. They not only dealt with housework and serving at table, but also made the student’s beds and cleaned their shoes. Indeed, much time at the General Meetings of undergraduates was spent discussing the complexities and responsibilities of various forms of social behavior. In 1927 the President of the J.C.R regularly received complaints that 'students walked bareheaded about the town', and had to request that hats should be worn in public places.
Students are required to live in on-campus residence halls until they reach the age of 20. There are five halls in total, and while they are co-ed, each floor is dedicated to a specific gender. There are often private rooms available for students who don't wish to have roommates. There are also a couple of apartment-style buildings where older students can live on-campus. While there are no fraternities or sororities at the college, many residence halls have unique activities they engage in, leading to fun and bonding between the students of the halls, similar to Greek
The dormitories at Manehattan University were nothing spectacular: A single bed, a bathroom with a vanity, a small kitchen, some desk space, and two bookcases. Often times, students and roommates alike would argue about which side of the bed or room was theirs, and what posters would be plastered on the wall, or, hell, even what drapes would cover the windows. Other times, students would quarrel about who gets to use the bathroom first in the morning; but usually it was the first one to get up; even then it spawned a dispute.
Of course, there is always that option of getting an apartment or home outside of the school, but it is always fun to be in one of the school’s dorms. There is residence hall, which is like the dorms on campus. Then there is family student housing which is for students with a family. There is also a daycare center for the little ones of the students for when they have to go to class. On campus, they also have apartments that you could rent instead of the normal dorms. Newly admitted single students are guaranteed on campus housing for at least their first two years. As long as you keep up with all the housing deadlines and requirements, you are guaranteed housing for all four years. UCR has great housing options for all students who are going to attend the
At Arizona State University, all freshman are expected to live in residential dorms on campus. With that, specific policies and procedures are implemented to ensure that all students get the best experience possible while at ASU. It is expected that all students will abide by the rules, and there are consequences to not following them that can affect one’s academic success and good standing in the university. By adhering to these policies, not only do you make sure that your experience on campus is as beneficial to your education as possible, but so is the experience of those around you.
The freedom that comes with leaving the comfort, safety, and regularity of home life can be a mixture of thrilling and nauseating. Along with a different sense of free rein comes a new set of laws, rules, and norms that can be crucial to succeeding in college.. In order to fit in there’s a certain set of guidelines that one must know and try to follow to a certain degree. The Student Housing laws can be considered the most important to follow in regard to the dorm room. These include but are not limited to- smoking in the dorm room, possession of alcohol (especially crucial if underage), and tampering with or disabling any fire alarms or fire equipment.
Average board and room cost for just a small college would be $300 a month, not including it being furnished, and other mandatory items. The cost of a dorm charges you a month and not the semester, making it more stressful to some students. A student would need to get a part time job for all the things they need for their dwelling. Part time jobs also only pay minimum wage , if that, leaving the student to no spending money. College makes the students pay for everyday home items instead of the college itself. Most colleges will even make you pay for wifi in your room and boarding fees.
College is a life changing experience for students. College is a new environment for most students and comes with lots of challenges. Things such as the increased difficulty of academic work and not being around the same social groups as a student was before college can make the transition very difficult. One of the best things a student can do to help with this transition is to live in a campus residence hall. Students should live in dorms because of the community that this creates. Students will gain many beneficial social interactions, will be able to better complete academic work, and will ease the adjustment to college life.
Walking into my dorm room after a stressful day of class, with a long night of studying in the library ahead of me, there are millions of things running threw my mind. I walk to the back of the room and look out my window and then I am immediately calm. I look at the groves in the tree trunks, the squirrels sitting on the branches, the green leaves dangling from above, the fallen pine straw on the floor, and the sun shining thru the spaces between the leaves. The discourse flowing between this scene before my eyes and me makes me feel like I am at my favorite place, calms me, and provides stable environment for everyone on campus.
