Benefits of College Life

Students who choose to live in a residential college enter into a way of life that enriches their university experience. Living at a college will help you make the transition to university and independent living a smooth one. Residential colleges enrich your education academically, socially and culturally. You will have the opportunity to live in a vibrant community, in the company of friends, peers, mentors and leaders.
