Benefits of Living on Campus
Living on campus is one of the best ways to meet new people and become involved in student life. Students are encouraged to become active members of their hall communities by joining Hall Council, attending hall meetings and participating in residence hall programs.
You’ll interact with faculty and staff outside of classrooms and offices, be able to meet with friends to have study sessions, and benefit from caring and supportive student life staff, who will assist with academic, personal and social concerns.
Living on campus is convenient. You can roll out of bed five minutes before class (and still make it there on time), and eat meals provided in the dining hall and in the Beehive.
Living on campus gives you easier access to class meetings, organization functions, and the campus information that you need about upcoming events. An added bonus is that your room and board bill is paid in the beginning of the semester so you won’t have monthly rent and utility bills.
Comments from a Former Resident:
Other than Cornhuskin' and late night Cookout® runs, my most memorable experience at Meredith is probably hanging out
in the residence halls freshman year. I met all of my best friends on the hall that I lived on... My freshman hall provided such
an initial close-knit group of friends as a support system."
