Living on campus

the Residential experience

The Morehouse Residential College is a commitment between the men of Morehouse and the Office of Housing & Residential Education to enhance the students' experience and success. This commitment requires students to live on-campus for three years.

Morehouse College believes that students who live on-campus are more likely to stay enrolled, persist towards graduation in a timely manner, and feel connected to the campus community.  Research shows that living on campus has several positive outcomes that help students developmentally. Empirical research reveals seven areas in which residence halls have a significant impact on students (Blimling, 2003)
Retention - Students have greater expectations for academic achievement and are     more likely to remain in college.

Co-curricular Involvement - More involved in campus activities. Students learn to work with     others, manage budgets, express their ideas in meetings, negotiate with     others, and follow through with projects.

Personal Growth and Development - Students meet more challenges, mature more quickly and learn to     become interdependent.
Interpersonal Relationships - Students build strong friendships and share more experiences. They     interact more, develop more tolerance, and experience more cultural     diversity.

Faculty Interaction
- Students have more contacts with faculty both in the residence     halls and due to closer proximity to faculty offices.

Positive Feelings about Campus Experiences     -  Students     feel that the campus is more comfortable, more educationally purposeful, more     supportive, and more enjoyable yielding higher overall satisfaction with     their college experience.
