The dorms and apartments are great! Until a student who is paying his/her own way through college sees the cost of the cheapest dorm is as much as their tuition! This is a big reason a large percentage of students commute. Also, people who have lived or are living on campus have said "good luck..." after mentioning living on campus next semester. The distance from class is not too bad unless you live in an apartment, which are on the edge of the campus. Overall, if the prices dropped to even two-thirds of my tuition, then I would definitely consider living on campus. Until then, just like me, many others will continue to commute everyday.
