If you are nervous about dorming on campus, or deciding if dorming is right for you, look no further. Here are the top 5 reasons why you should be dorming at La Sierra University this year:
1. Better grades
Studies show that by dorming, you are more likely to achieve higher grades than those who do not live on campus. Living in the dorms means you are able to arrive on time to classes, as well as cut out travel time which can be used to study.
2. Meet more people
Living on campus gives you the opportunity to meet more people. It also makes it easier for you to build relationships with other people living in the dorms with you. Whether it be with your roommates or with people on your same floor, you will be making memories that will last a lifetime.
3. More social opportunities
Being on campus 24/7 means you have access to all campus events, meaning more overall involvement. This also allows you to meet more people that you wouldn’t necessarily encounter in your daily classes, and enjoy a full college experience.
4. Gain life experience
Even if it is not your first time away from home, living in the dorms provides you a safe transition into adult life. You will gain life experiences in a positive environment with the help of campus staff and resident advisors.
5. Spiritual life
Dorming at La Sierra means that you will be attending weekly dorm worships. Living in the dorms ensures that your academics do not encroach on your spiritual life, and gives you opportunities to become more involved with the spiritual life on campus.
Living on campus can seem intimidating, especially if you have never lived away from home before and are worried about roommates. Dorming at La Sierra will allow you to have the best possible college experience by giving you opportunities for social and spiritual growth.
