The Perks of Living on Campus Your Freshman Year

Let me tell you, living on campus comes with a lot of perks.  You’re surrounded by cool people, places, and things, AND you’re also right by your classes! You honestly can’t beat that, which is why I highly recommend living on campus your freshman year of college…along with these reasons:

1. It’s convenient   

We are going to make this short and sweet…you are always where or at least near where you need to be when you live on campus.

2. You’re in the hub of it all

Walk and go explore on and far beyond campus! You’re surrounded by so many cool and historic buildings, businesses, restaurants, music venues, museums and so much more. This makes getting internships and exploring new styles of life much easier.

3. The library is down the street

If you’re like me, studying in your bedroom is huge centre full of distraction. If you live on campus, you have the library where the vibe is nothing but getting work done, so you have no other choice but to fall in line. Students studying in the library


4.  You’ll make more friends

There are hundreds of students that live in your dorm, and there are thousands of us walking around looking for new people to meet and socialize with.

5. Easy access to campus events

When you live on campus you are first to hear about all the events going on campus, especially when it comes to events like Panther Palooza where you are able to be first in line.


6. Meal plans (for some)

Go downstairs and get some food! Unless you live in University Commons or Lofts, in that case you can go across, down or up the street to get some food. There are endless food options and it’s all buffet style, so go for it!

7. Accessible Parking

Let’s make this short and simple, too. We have parking garages; safe parking garages with keycard access only. Yes I know, they seem very expensive, but if you calculated parking on campus every single day or paying for parking once a semester I think you’ll be satisfied.

*side-note: there is also parking at Turner Field that’s free for Georgia State Students



8. University Lofts is open over school breaks

You don’t have to move your stuff out!! Upper classmen that lived in the residence halls can tell you about the struggle of having to move your stuf


There you have it, most of the reasons why living on campus would be a great decision when entering school!
