I have a special living arrangement deal with Campus Apartments. Due to a special deal with them by my College Bound group, if I chose a college with Campus Apartments near it, I'll get to live there for all four years for free! Maybe even eight if they let me live in them for free during my med school years. These apartments include EVERYTHING! They have tons of amenities, the utilities are paid off, I can bring my car to whichever campus since they have a free parking garage, and all of them aren't too far away from campus! If I chose to go to University of Maryland, University of Connecticut, University of Georgia, or University of Central Florida, I'll reap the benefits. Here are the links to see what each Campus Apartment looks like:

Athens, Georgia Apartments - University of Georgia Apartments - Campus Crossings At Abbey West - Off Campus Student Housing - Campus Apartments
Orlando, Florida Apartments - Campus Crossings at Alafaya - University of Central Florida, Seminole Community College - Student Housing
Orlando, Florida Apartments - University of Central Florida - College Station - Student Housing
By living in these apartments for free, not only will I enjoy a luxurious 4+ years, but I will also save tens of thousands of dollars. The only thing I'm worried about is not really having a social life with all the other freshmen. You don't get that typical bonding experience with other freshmen living off-campus. So what would you do if you were me? Would you live in the apartment or in a dorm?
P.S. I know that they're a ton of other "Living off-campus freshman year" questions, but my situation is special. A lot of those people either have no choice due to a shortage of campus housing, or a request from their parents to live off campus. I have a choice of living at a spacious, off-campus location, or dorming my freshman year.
