The Apartment Experience
By Matthew Venaas, Amanda
Knerr, and Jessica Robinson
Campus apartment
communities have changed,
but they still are a multifaceted
environment that offers an
exceptional student experience.

Spotlight on the University of
Southern Mississippi plus more
institutions adding gender-neutral
pronouns to forms; a new online
resource to curb alcohol abuse; a
new study shows the value of texting;
the new campus safety initiative from
the Virginia Tech community; an
update on Hall Crew; how campus
life is better thanks to one good dog;
which are the top LGBTQ friendly
campuses; and how on-campus living
enhances the student experience by
the numbers.
