LIVING ON CAMPUS – QUICK SHEET

GET THE FULL SC EXPERIENCE

Living on Campus
College is about more than taking classes. It’s also a time to meet lifelong friends, join activities, and for some students, it’s a chance to live on their own for the first time. Students who live in the residence halls are closer to their classes and campus resources. Campus residents are also more involved in student life activities and often have *higher GPAs than students living off campus.
