3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: With a small town, the off- campus housing is not something most students choose to do. The University built four new resident halls that more students are moving into. The proximity to the campus from off-campus housing is close, as well as everything in town.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've been a commuter student myself for all three years of college so far, so living off-campus is my thing. There isn't much apartment-wise, but if you have family in the area, it is the PERFECT way to commute.

However, Alderson-Broaddus doesn't put much consideration into their commuter students. Everything planned is later in the evening, so if you commute, you have to wait around for hours at a time just to participate in the events.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: As of right now, there aren't really any options for living off campus, unless you want to live with your parents.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: False Advertisement – At Alderson Broaddus, the resident life directors and dean of students says that they have many restrictions on getting an off-campus house but they never follow through with most of these restrictions. As of this year, they are encouraging students to move off-campus because they do not have enough room to house them on-campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Not Too Sure – I myself live on campus, so I am not really aware of much off campus housing. I know there are a few apartment complexes in town but that's about it
