Sidewalk Symposium: Living on or off campus for seniors?


Caleb Barbor, senior finance major, lives in City Vista.

“I think City Vista is a good middle ground. When you rent a house, you get more exposed to cooking and things like that, but when you’re living on campus, you really just eat at the dining hall, so it doesn’t really help you prepare for healthy living.”

Parker Pennington, senior engineering major, lives in City Vista.

“[Living on campus] is pretty expensive. I lived off campus over the summer and that was considerably cheaper.”

Mia Yammine, senior economics and business major, lives off campus.

“I really miss having a meal plan, so I got one this year anyway. Sometimes with traffic, [living off campus] sucks, but I really like it overall.”
