7. Housing

Live in the heart of Warrior nation. Students who live on campus have higher graduation rates, higher GPAs and graduate faster than those who live off-campus. Research shows that students who choose to live on campus have stronger connections with faculty and to their campus, better relationships with their peers and are more likely to get involved. Being within an 8-minute walk to any building on campus doesn't hurt, either.

Experience it for yourself. Apply for housing today.
