Living on campus is an unbelievable experience. I'm from New York and I chose to go away to another city, Boston, for college. My dorm is very colorful and I noticed that we're like a family. We have activities and games to learn more about each other and it's amazing to be with people who have similar interests. There are multiple dining halls, and even great off-campus dining options. In fact, I live across two dining halls, and a gym as well. Living on campus also allows me to be in a college atmosphere and make me feel more comfortable and at home. The cost might be a little high, but I think it's worth it because that's how one will get the best college experience. Being surrounded by students such as myself and with similar interests reminds me of my goals and motivates me to complete them.
