Residence Life Policies and Living On-Campus, Time for a Change?

by Sierra Williams
Faculty advisor: Dr. Steve Remington

The purpose of this project was to determine whether or not Buena Vista University’s officials should revisit the issue of requiring students to live on-campus given the current state of the housing facilities. I looked to accomplish this by asking students if given the choice to live off-campus if they would take advantage of it and what the cause behind that choice would be. The primary aspect looked at is if the current residence life policies would affect a student’s decision to live off-campus if given the choice and furthermore which policies would affect a student’s decision the most.
