5 Things to Look for in a University Campus
The university search/ decision process can be a tedious and overwhelming one; so we’ve created a list to help ease your mind, well with finding the perfect campus at least.
“Some of my fondest memories took place during my college years.”
Student Life. It sets the tone for the experience students will have during their four years attending university. Students should look for activities/ events offered by the university. Social media is a great way to see what “life is really like” on a campus.
“You got a friend in me.”
Community. It goes hand-in-hand with student life, but community will make or break your college experience. It’s important to look for a university that creates an environment where friendships are easy to form and difficult to lose.
“Dorm Sweet Dorm”
The Residence Halls/ Living Arrangements. It’s pretty obvious why this is important. This is the place a student will eat, sleep, and study throughout their college career. These dorms are where memories are made and life challenges are tackled. So it’s important to know what your options are.
“I think I could see myself here.”
Prospective Major Buildings/ Classrooms. Yet another place a student will spend a lot of time is in their respective major/degree buildings and classrooms. Knowing the amenities and space provided can help the student picture what his learning environment and experience will be like.
“Food is essential to life; therefore, make it good.”
Food. Students should know what options the university will provide them. Unlimited meals? On-campus restaurants? Late-night dining? The cafeteria/ eating places are often the life of the university. Students meet up during classes, at the beginning of their day, or late nights. So knowing the options and food you have to look forward to is essential.
