What do you think are the bene ts to living on campus?
I live on campus and everything is really close by. For example, there are a lot of events at ASU, so you have easy access to them. Also, just depending on what you are studying because for business students, there’s a lot of stuff going on all the time on campus. For theater students, we also have our plays and rehearsals on campus all the time. It’s nice and easy to access those places when I live right here.

What do you think are the best freedoms to living off campus?
Even though you are living on campus, you can still find a place that’s [very]close to campus and that can be [essentially]the same as living on campus. The other great thing is [being able to]have pets if you are living off campus.

Do you think that schools should require students to live on campus? Why or why not?
Yes. I think it’s a good idea for freshmen to live on campus in the beginning because they are still pretty young when they just come to the university. It’s easier for some freshmen to get in trouble because some of them might be less accountable and responsible to themselves.

What do you think are the benefits to living on campus?
You can meet a lot of new people and you have that ‘on-campus’ college experience thing. So far, I’ve met a great majority of people and I have made some awesome friends already. It’s also a convenience thing because I’m only 10 minutes away from my furthest class. That’s always helpful.

What do you think are the best freedoms to living off campus?
I’d have to say you have a little [more]freedom compared to the restrictions you have on campus. Also, you get to pick your own roommates if you live off campus. They normally arrange the dorm rooms randomly if you don’t know anyone coming to the university.

Do you think that schools should require students to live on campus? Why or why not?
Yes and no. I was required to live on campus as a freshman and I really made some good friends. I wouldn’t know them if I didn’t live on campus. But it’s more expensive compared to living off campus, so I can’t really say which one is right.
