My on-campus experience has been fun, crazy and eye opening. Living with people you barely know opens up your eyes to how diverse FAU really is. Also, it helps develop friendships that has allowed for some fun, crazy and laugh-out-loud nights.
At first, I was super nervous about living away from home, but I joined a Living-Learning Community and I got to meet a bunch of other students who were interested in the same things as me. It made me feel more comfortable and being in an LLC showed me all the opportunities that living on campus had to offer me.
I've lived on campus for two full years and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've been able to build long lasting relationships with other students and staff.
My on campus experience has been amazing. I was apprehensive as it came to rommates but it opened me up to great friends and memorable moments.
The on-campus experience is very enjoyable. This summer has been my first time living on campus as a matter of fact. You get accustomed to the company of your friends living right next door, literally. We manage to always just barge into each other's room to see what we have going on.
Living in GPT my freshman year helped me get acclimated to FAU. Not only did I gain many close friends, but I also built a sense of community by living with all other freshmen who were in the same boat as me. We had the support of each other, whether it came to finding classes, studying for tests or asking where the best sushi place was. It made a world of difference knowing that I could count on my fellow freshmen to help me out.

Living on campus is an experience that I really enjoy for many reasons. It is very convenient for me when it comes to wake up in the morning to go to class, do my homework and study. Campus life also allows me to build a network that I could ever imagine by meeting with new people such as students, teachers, parents, and others. It is the best for any student; it will change your life.
During my senior year of high school I would have never pictured myself moving away for college. I did not think that I would ever feel comfortable living somewhere in which I would not have any of my family or close friends nearby. After visiting various schools, FAU definitely stood out to me and made me change my mind on attending a college away from home. The residence halls are clean and well kept. Living on campus has made me become more independent and engaged in the school. Within the first six weeks of living on campus I was already involved with the Summer Programming Committee (co-chair). Each resident housing tower has many opportunities in which students can become leaders and build relationships with one another.
When it comes to waking up for classes, all you have to do is hop right out of bed and you are at school. It is convenient, and you do not have to waste time driving to and from school everyday. I encourage students to live at least one year on campus. It truly is an experience you would not want to miss out on!
I love living on campus. Aside from the fact that it s convenient, it also allows me to be in the middle of the action! Typically speaking there is at least one RA event a night and with FAU s countless clubs and organizations, the housing lawn is always buzzing with student laughter and free food. In addition to that, the customer service provided by the housing staff is exceptional. My direct supervisor has really provided the support and input needed to further my growth not only within housing but also in my personal endeavors. With everything that I have experienced here at FAU, I can't imagine living anywhere else.
Living on campus has allowed me to take control of my college experience and make it one of a kind. Being a resident of the University Village Apartments has introduced me to a unique living community for upperclassmen, who like myself want to have a unique college experience. Living in an apartment-style residence hall is a great opportunity for students to learn how to manage real-world tasks, such as cooking. After a long day of classes it is great to be able to come back and relax in the common room that is right in the apartment.
Living on campus has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It placed me at the center of FAU with all of the resources literally steps away. It allowed me to create a wonderful network at the University. It gave me a chance to create my own college experience, choose my own crowd and make the transition from high school to college smoother; it also enabled me to get a job on campus. I strongly recommend that every incoming freshman spends at least one year living on campus so hopefully you ll make the decision to live on campus. If you do, see you there!
