While it will be a little more difficult to get that “college experience”, there are still plenty of ways to connect to your school. You can join clubs, intramural sports, get involved in Greek life, have a job on campus, attend the sporting events, etc! Most schools have events or concerts going on at their campus quite frequently, go to those! Most importantly, since you wont be living in the dorms, make sure to try and get to know people in your classes. Branch out! My best friend currently lives 20 miles off campus, but joins me in most things I do on campus. And get this, I met her at a tailgate for a football game. Living off campus for her hasn’t effected her overall experience one bit. College is great because there are SO many options to get involved. So take advantage of that and have fun!
I’m going to be stuck living off campus, any tips on how to still get the whole college experience?
I’m going to be stuck living with my Grandmother and commuting to campus everyday; any tips on how to still get the whole college experience without living on campus?
