3 Reasons Why College Students Love Coming Back Home For The Holidays

 


1Free Laundry


      No more using those pesky rolls of quarters. Knowing that you can bring all of your dirty laundry home without having to pay for it is a wonderful feeling. Nobody really likes doing laundry but when you don’t have to pay to wash and dry each load with quarters, it makes it much easier. Having said that, one of the most useful gifts you can get from a relative is not cash, but rather a roll of quarters.





    2.   Meeting Up With Your Old High School Friends. 

    
      Meeting at a local restaurant with friends from high school that went to another college is always a great time.

You may even be very intrigued by one of your friend's colleges that you think about transferring schools (maybe). College is a very unique time in a young person's life and sharing those unique experiences is what makes college such a great time.




    3. Home-Cooked Meal

It’s always nice taking a break from Ramen, Instant Mac and Cheese, and popcorn to eat a real hearty meal like steak and potatoes or chicken and rice. The only downside to the home-cooked meal is that it will take more than a few minutes in the microwave. You just can't rush great food. The home cooked meal tastes better and is probably healthier for you than the typical college diet.

But whether it's a convenient on-campus dorm or an off-campus apartment, student housing presents challenges that students need to consider before they decide where to live each semester.  One of the clearest problems in student housing is the need students have to find places to live that are close to campus. On-campus dormitories and apartments offer one solution, but many larger universities have so many students that auxiliary campuses and buses are the only way to provide enough accessible housing.  High demand for student housing near urban campuses or large schools may cause real estate prices to rise, making nearby apartments and rental houses unaffordable for students. Off-campus housing also places the burden of paying for utility service and commuting to and from campus on the students themselves. For students who take ou
