Description

The luxuries of off campus housing definitely outweigh the convenience of living on campus.

Understanding The Luxuries Of Off-Campus Housing With the off-campus housing growing in popularity, the parents paying the rent are beginning to wonder if their college kids are actually putting as much effort into their studying as they say they are. Each housing complex that goes up is trying to outdo their competitors by providing better amenities that make life for a college kid seem like a luxury. Luxury Amenities for Students However, the issue is not the amenities provided, but the kids themselves. According to an article by the New York Times, some of these complexes have spas, tanning beds, fitness centers, and a pool. While the spa and tanning salon aspect are kind of new, being too distracted by the pool and fitness center is not at the fault of the apartment. Moving into your first apartment – although amazing and liberating – can still be stressful. It’s less uniform and you have to create your own set of rules. When you live in a dorm, the rules are mutual between the two roommates, and when you’re living with your parents, you live by their rules – you’ve never had to make YOUR own set of rules.

LIVING OFF CAMPUS TIPS These are some tips if you feel like your new off-campus housing complex is distracting you too much from your school work…  Sleeping in is nice, but so is setting your classes in the morning, getting them over with, and then being able to have the rest of the day to yourself. So, set your classes earlier in the day, that way when you’re done, you can enjoy the distractions without feeling stressed about skipping class.  Make the pool a reward. Finish your homework, then you can go to the pool and work on your tan. Go to all your classes today, or you can’t go lay out – it’s as simple as that.  Build a routine! This is the best way to ensure that you are getting everything done that needs to be done. College tends to be a time when you lose your cool and go a little too crazy with the liberation from your parents. So, by building a routine – just like waking up every day for high school – then you will be tan and educated. College is the best time of your life and it’s the time when you’re supposed to experience the world. Having your own apartment before you graduate is an important factor because it allows you to learn to take care of yourself. So, realistically, it’s all about focus.
