Living on campus allows me to be more involved within the school, rather than just simply being a student of the school. I am able to attend a lot of events on campus, and also fortunate enough to embrace Newark.

As a commuter, I end up having the best of both worlds. I am able to enjoy the relationships that I build with my peers, as well as take part in the various events on campus, without missing out on other important parts of my life.
