1. Lasting Friendships
Students will be part of the campus community and will make new and lasting friendships.
2. Shared Experiences
The advantage of living in a dorm is they will have a roommate when they get there, regardless of whether they know anyone else. Their roommate will also be adjusting to living away from home for the first time. That means they will both be sharing the experience. It is common for students to form close friendships with their roommates and other residents in their halls.
3. Social Life
Participating in a range of student clubs and organizations is another way to get involved on campus. It gives students the chance to explore their interests outside of their regular classes and try new things.
4. Improved Academic Outcomes
Living on campus also helps students achieve higher grades. Students living on campus for just one year are shown to achieve better academic outcomes than those who do not. As a result of being closer to classes, faculty and resources like the library and academic resource center (LARC), students are more engaged.
5. Added Safety
Moberly Area Community College is committed to providing a safe, crime-free environment for employees and students. Security is provided around the clock on the campus. At MACC, you can always contact the Campus Security Office if needed.
6. Support to Succeed
Students can be confident that no matter what their issue is, they’ll receive the support they need to guide them in the right direction, whether they’ve lost their keys or need advice about living in Moberly, Missouri. Student advisors can guide you or provide you with access to the right person.
7. Save Money & Reduce Your Commute
Accommodations on campus usually include utilities such as electricity, gas, water, and internet access. In addition, students have access to a greatly reduced meal plan. By paying for these together, students will save money and find that service can be maintained more easily.
You don’t need a car to get around campus because you’re within walking distance of everything. It’s one of the best perks of living on campus. In addition to classes, Rothwell Park, numerous churches, shops, banks, and more are within walking distance. Plus, you’ll save time and energy by not having to find parking, and it’s better for the environment!
