ONU Blog - Dorm Life

Image result for dorm life
Every college has it and every student who lives on campus their first year of college has to go through it at some point. First-year students who live on campus are enrolled in their school's meal plan and must live on campus for the first two semesters. Ohio Northern though is a little different. First-year students that attend school in Ada, Ohio must live in the freshman dorms and also do the meal plan. With this meal plan though is 250 dollars to spend freely on food. Second-year students are the same way. ONU requires sophomores to live in their second-year dorms and also be on their meal plan. Just as students have their freshman year, they receive 250 dollars to spend as they please on food. Third-year students are a little different though, juniors at Ohio Northern must live on campus in the on-campus apartments but do not have to be on a meal plan. The apartments ONU provides on their campus have a full kitchen that enables students to make their own food instead of continuing to be on the meal plan. With this plan, instead of receiving 250 dollars like the previous two years, students receive 300 dollars to spend on any food.

Studies have shown students receive worse grades as they begin to move off campus so I am sure that is why ONU makes their students live on campus for the first 3 years of being in college. The dorm life at times can seem terrible and can seem like the worst thing ever but actually some of your best friends for the rest of your life are met in your first year of college when you are all stuck in the freshman dorms. While there are advantages and disadvantages to every situation, the dorm life is no different. Living in a small confined space for 9 months out of the year with another person can be tough and it seems like the recipe for disaster but conflict is part of life and learning how to deal with it effectively is vital to becoming an adult.
