All USC freshmen are guaranteed a place to live on campus their first year. However, come fall 2015 those freshmen have tomove off campus to make room for a new class.
The Off-Campus Housing Preview Day took place Thursday on Greene Street. This gave all students the opportunity to preview some of the apartment complexes near campus.
This event is for all students, though some, like freshmen Sarah Miller, says she doesn't care for some things that come with living on campus.
"I want to move off campus because the cooking situation, I'm not a big fan of the meal plan. So I want to have more freedom, and maybe live with people who I want to live with," said Miller.
Off-Campus Housing Coordinator, Dave Foster says freshman are the main target at the event.
"A lot of freshman don't sometime realize that they probably are going to live off campus their second, third and fourth year. So this gives them an opportunity to meet some of the apartment complexes in the area and kind of get some information in, and just see what they're options are," said Foster.
Students had the chance to walk around to the different booths where they viewed floor plans, asked questions and got free promotional materials.
