3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is cheaper to live off campus than living on campus. However, there are many parts that are dangerous to live, due to violence and gang activity.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus Housing is probably a good source of housing if needed. However, Wesleyan provides housing opportunities for its students. However, I recommend living on campus because its an experience within itself.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No one is allowed to live off campus at Wesleyan College unless your permanent address is less than 30 miles away.

Off-Campus Housing: The only people who really live off campus are the non-traditional students.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: No Off-Campus – Our school encourages people to live on campus. It's really unfortunate because there are lofts downtown Macon that some of us would love to live in. So there's not really much to report. No off-campus living means no opinions about it.

Not many Wesleyannes live off campus, as the school encourages students to reside in the dorms and apartments on campus. The students who do live off campus are generally nontraditional students, students who live with a close relative nearby, or students who are married or pregnant. 

Not having off-campus housing options is both a burden and a blessing. Because most people live on campus, this arouses a sense of unity and community. However, many students feel that being forced to live on campus is a pain in that the room and board fees consistently go up every year, burning a hole through their pockets. Plus, the dorms aren't necessarily up-to-date when it comes to having wireless access and other amenities.
