    I actually consider several listed "cons" of being on campus as advantages (for life) of living on campus. Limited privacy, dealing with a roommate, new environment, etc are all very necessary experiences in the maturing process. At some point in one's life, they'll have to learn to deal with lots of things outside their norm. College is a great time for that (without all the responsibilities of real life).

    College has so much to offer. Very difficult to take advantage of the non academic aspects without being on campus. And the non academic aspects actually provide a ton of education (about one's self).
