If you’re a high school student thinking about college, or if you’re currently in college, or if you’re a parent of a prospective college student, you’ve probably thought about on-campus housing. Why do colleges require students to live on campus? How much does it cost? What are the advantages? What are the disadvantages? Do students really save money by living off campus?

Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll hear students at Edgewood College argue their point of view and settle the debate: Is it better to live on campus or off campus?

And perhaps when we’re done analyzing “on v. off”, we’ll determine which is grammatically correct: “on campus” v. “on-campus”.
