Not Everyone Can Afford the All-American On-Campus Experience

Not Everyone Can Afford the All-American On-Campus Experience | SCUP Links |
Living away from home gives students a chance to immerse themselves in new academic and social worlds. But that kind of college experience is available only to an increasingly privileged few.
Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

"But the arguments for living on campus are complicated at every turn. In reality, dorm life, especially at selective schools, can be alienating for first-generation minority students struggling to relate to peers with private school diplomas and plenty of pocket money. To low-income parents, many of whom have more traditional values, talk of non-academic engagement can sound pretty frivolous and even suspicious, as if easy access to frat row were being recast as a pillar of a well-rounded education. To these same parents, staying at home doesn’t seem at all unconventional. In high school, my peers and I understood going away to college as going away. Separation from family was part of the deal. This is not a universally accepted notion in Latino and Asian family traditions in which multi-generational households are quite common."

Dynamic Planning Leads to Expanded Growth on Major Campuses #umiami Symposium 9/18

Dynamic Planning Leads to Expanded Growth on Major Campuses #umiami Symposium 9/18 | SCUP Links |

Recovering from recent economic challenges, three major institutions in the southern region of Florida are creating and implementing dynamic plans for the future that will be the catalyst to both expanded growth on the campuses and increased quality as they strive to meet the growing expectations of students and the changing face of higher education. The University of Miami is expanding, replacing, and renovating all of its existing housing stock through a carefully sequenced nine-year plan. The University of South Florida in Tampa is anticipating the use of a public-private partnership structure for a large scale mixed-use development including more than 2,000 student housing beds.  Florida International University is among the top 10 in national enrollment and number 1 nationally in graduating Hispanic students and has recently opened new student housing on that campus.
