Just Jared: The Pros and Cons of Commuting and Living Off Campus

I just got hip to the life of a commuter. And…it’s different. I’m not even supposed to be here. I should have graduated in May, I should have been celebrating earning my degree and stressing about finding a job at the exact same time over the course of summer…but I still have some work to do. No shame.

Anyway, not living on campus (I’m not even living relatively close to Towson. It takes me 30 minutes…to get here) has given me new perspectives, new appreciations, and new frustrations about this semester. Here are some of my pros and cons of living the commuter life.

PRO: The freedom to jam to your favorite songs on your way to school…

This is how I learned ALL the lyrics to EVERY song on the radio!

CON:until you have to deal with traffic

PRO: You don’t have to spend money on a meal plan

Here’s to not being constipated from eating on campus!

CON: You have to spend money on real food

PRO: Living off campus means you’re not bound by dorm of university rules…

RA’s? What RA’s?!
