*Can You AFFORD to live off-campus?
Are you interested in learning more about what it really costs to live off-campus?  So often students ask “Is it cheaper to live on or off campus?” Most of the time students come to the conclusion that it’s less expensive to live off campus.  Quite often, they fail to recognize the hidden costs commonly associated with living off-campus.  Come hear Mr. Dean Smith, Director of Finance and Administration for Student Involvement and Leadership, provide an overview of costs each student should be aware of when deciding to move off-campus.
