Living on campus can be convenient at times. However, living off-campus is even better, especially in your own house.
I lived on-campus for two years, and found it to be awesome. It is nice to be around the learning atmosphere, but it is even nicer living in your own house a few blocks away from campus. I live conveniently close, but far enough to where I don’t have to deal with the campus hustle and bustle.
Living in a house means you don’t have to walk up many flights of stairs to reach your bedroom or wait on an elevator. It also means you don’t have to share a shower or restroom. I have been extremely fortunate to have the opportunity to live in a house, because I am able to venture out and meet new people.
Some may think that living in an apartment offers a better social scene, but I know for a fact living in a house offers the same opportunity. If you consider yourself a “people person” and enjoy making new friends, then living in a house will definitely not restrict you from doing so.
Living in a house prepares you for the future. Everyone plans on owning their own place once they get a dream job and establish themselves. If you live in a house now, it will benefit you in the long run. You get to experience the responsibilities of maintaining a house. In the end, living in a house is definitely the way to go.
