Make living on campus part of your story

Living on campus is not only better for your education it’s more FUN than living anywhere else.

Living on campus has been a great experience for me. I love being so close to my classmates and friends. The activities that the Residents Assistants organize are a lot of fun and I think it’s great how tight the student community is here.

My room is awesome, it’s spacious, quiet, and I have my own bathroom with a shower. I love living on campus because I’m so close to my classmates and friends, but sometimes I need to take a break and be alone to decompress. CHOC gives me the best of both worlds.

Being in the Animal Health Technologist program requires me to do surgery for extended periods of time. Living on campus means I don’t have to worry about getting home after dark.

I was confident in my decision to live in CHOC after I saw the building in person for the first time. I was immediately impressed by how nice and high-quality the residence is. It's also great to live on campus so it takes no time at all to get to and from my classes (which means I can sleep in).

I decided to live in CHOC because it would give me an opportunity to make friends and participate in school activities. The fact that all my friends live on campus means I get to visit them every day to eat breakfast, walk to class, or just catch up together.

I’m from Ontario so finding a place in Olds would have been a hassle. Living on campus is so much easier. Plus I won’t be living on KD and ramen (my mom is happy about that).

I was surprised at how many opportunities there were for fun things to do. If I wasn’t living on campus, I probably wouldn’t have joined intramurals and ended up playing on teams with people on my floor. We had so much fun. I thought it was cool that residence has things like Anime nights and Dog therapy.
