BYU requires all renters to meet university specifications and to agree to enforce the Honor Code. As such, BYU only approves a limited assortment of apartment complexes and require their students to live there. This restriction placed on BYU students creates an unfair, monopolistic market. In this market, property owners charge excessive rent for dilapidated properties with no fear of losing tenants. Unlike students at other major universities that can shop around for reasonably priced and maintained residences, BYU students are limited to leasing from a handful of renters that uphold the university’s specifications in name
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.
Anxiety inducing, overly-complicated and a huge frustration are just some of the ways Syracuse University students described the on-campus housing lottery. But when it comes down to it, is there a better way?
Being a member of Residence Halls Association for almost two years, I have resolved numerous issues which resulted in extending a time period visitors can stay with students at residence halls, opening a residential gym, and active involvement in events provided by Residence Halls Association. Moreover, as an event coordinator of Residence Halls Association, I have provided over hundred events. These events include fundraising for Residence Halls Association operations and various social programs like Thanksgiving Dinner supply, providing community members and residents of Marymount California University with sports tournaments, Color runs, and thematic
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
No evidence was found of Houston Community College’s Chancellor Cesar Maldonado committing any criminal activity in the purchase of the former Conn’s property in front of the West Loop campus.
Most of us are 18 and older; which means that we are legal and considered to be grown adults, if we wanted to we could go and buy our own living space without anyone telling us who we can have come spend the night or what times they can come and go especially when we are paying to stay there just as we would if we purchased our own living space. If we had purchased our own place to stay wherever that would be I’m sure that there will be rules that we would have to abide by as well, which is fine but if we didn’t abide by those rules we would most likely be kicked out and that’s how our campus visitation rules should be regulated. Also if the school can trust the upper classmen housing with no visitation limitations then they should at least try to trust the freshmen housing with no limitations on
The dorms are apartment style with four private bedrooms and shared living space and kitchen. Dorms are gender specific and there are complexes for housing married couples. Housing for fraternities and sororities are lodge style. Approximately 64% of students reside in on-campus housing. The campus is also home to academic halls, administration center, several sports fields, an indoor swimming pool, two dining halls, and a wellness center. The university has guest housing available for visiting family members and
The third university we looked into was the University of Florida, where a study was done about why students who were waitlisted to have counseling services, did not return for services in the following semester. We chose to look into this school because we found similarities in their waitlist timing and retention rates. They had positive and negative responses from students who were involved in the survey. This study allowed us to see how students respond to a waitlist and how it affected their retention.
Providence College is a liberal arts college, which consists of roughly four thousand undergraduate students, located in Providence, Rhode Island. One of the staples of the college has been the ability to live off-campus on Eaton Street starting in a student’s junior year. The attraction stems from most of the party scene on the weekends being at these houses on the streets bordering the campus. However, starting in the Fall of 2017, the school is implicating a new policy that juniors are required to live on campus. While the school is attempting to reduce disturbances in the surrounding community caused by partying college students, this housing restriction is only going to cause further issues for Providence College, its students, and
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.
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.
The location of Oak on campus is also a major selling point for a lot of its resident compared to North and the on-campus apartments because of its proximity to major areas on
I think this topic would be interesting because of how many problems we ran into throughout the entire process and because I could incorporate some tips of how to get into the housing complex that you want. I could do some research on how other schools manage student housing and what percentage of students move off campus after their freshman year. Another possible research method would be to interview students that live on and off campus to see why they chose to stay or leave JMU housing. I really want to incorporate a map of Harrisonburg to show where the complexes are located and I could also use surveys and pictures in my
