We Asked; You Answered:  Student Survey Responses!

Ten days ago, Off-Campus Student Services launched a small scale survey about off-campus housing.  We asked two questions: 1) What was the best experience you've had living off-campus, and 2) What's the most important thing for students to be aware of when choosing an off-campus rental?  The survey was distributed through our website and via Facebook.  We received over 150 responses, of which approximately 100 were complete and could be counted.  What we learned (about our survey tool, participation rates, and the method of distributing the survey) will inform the development of a comprehensive off-campus housing information exchange resource for students.  Look for a roll-out in early Fall 2019.  In the meantime, check out the "best places" and "most important advice" results from our mini-survey:

Announcing: "House Hunters: App State Edition" this Monday, February 4

Join Off-Campus Student Services and Transfer Services for a van tour of local student rental properties. We will stop at several apartment complexes for a quick open house and tour of a unit and will drive by other properties to help students get a sense of location and types of rental housing available. While this tour is, by no means, exhaustive, it's a great opportunity get the lay of the land and begin to explore options for off-campus housing -- all while being chauffeured in the comfort of a 12 person van! The tour will leave from the Belk Library Parking Circle at 5 p.m. and return at approximately 7 p.m.

Click the links for more information and to register in AppSync:  TOUR 1  OR TOUR 2

Students with their own transportation are also invited to visit properties between 5 and 7 p.m. to participate in the open house!  See AppSync events (links, above) for information on which properties will be holding open houses.
