Living On Campus

Experience the Lake Effect…on the rest of your life, like never before! By living on campus, you’ll be at the center of College activity and create memories and friendships that will last a lifetime – all while getting a quality education at an affordable price!

The American Council on Education reported studies show students who reside on campus:

  • Report a higher satisfaction with their college experience.
  • Are more likely to succeed in college and complete their degree.
  • Are more likely to achieve and maintain a higher grade point average (GPA).
  • Have a positive self image, with enhanced self-confidence, public speaking ability and self-reliance.
  • Participate in more extracurricular activities (a factor especially important to recruiters in the job search process).

Other national studies show students who live on campus:

  • Develop relationships with a diverse population of people.
  • Are exposed to a wider range of ideas and cultures.
  • Develop stronger interpersonal and communication skills.
  • Are involved in campus leadership, organizations and activities.
  • Have more contact with faculty and staff members.

As an added incentive for students to take advantage of living on campus, students who choose to reside in Lake Michigan College’s Beckwith Hall will automatically qualify for in-district tuition.
