Studies show students who live on campus have higher GPAs and are more likely to graduate on time. A supportive environment during a person’s time as an undergraduate student plays an important role in earning a degree. Living on campus encourages student success through in-hall study groups, utilization of award-winning libraries, and access to professors or free academic tutoring.


“Take advantage of resources. For example, in Chem 101 I went to SI [supplemental instruction]  and review sessions held by professors. I knew the material well but by going to these things I was able to master the information. I got an A+ in the class”
