Residential Living Benefits Students Socially BY Bethany Cambeis

Living residentially allows Stevens Institute of Technology’s students to gain more experiences that students living off campus would not encounter as easily.

Residential living aids with developing stronger relationships with peers and professors.

Sources show that residential students have greater participation in extracurricular activities, such as...

  • Intramural sports
  • School Clubs and Activities
  • Volunteering opportunities
  • Student Service Projects

Since the activities are on campus, they are more convenient, accessible, and in a comfortable environment for residential students.

Participating in activities like these would allow students to meet other students sharing the same interests and experiences as them.

Living on campus provides students the opportunity to meet other students from multiple states and cultures and results in expanding social circles.

The picture of the map of the U.S. represents national diversity, while the image of the globe represents global diversity.

Social elements would bring a positive impact to Stevens Institute of Technology’s students if they are encouraged to live residentially.
