3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus living is best if you have a car!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off-campus is nice in some places that you go but others not so good. The prices are a little high.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is more freedom than it is on campus. I love the idea of being on my own. It provides more responsibility for me but this will help me mature more.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus housing includes houses to rent, rooms to rent, or an apartment complex next door to the university.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Students wishing to live campus will most likely end up at Evergreen Commons. Evergreen Commons is about a 5 or 7 seven minute walk off campus which can be convenient is certain weather conditions but not in others. The pricing however is not so convenient. There is a multitude of parking spaces which is also convenient.
