EMU: Dorms

An article in Inside Higher Ed describes how Eastern Michigan University opened up its dorms to students of Washtenaw Community College this fall. The article quotes Linda Blakey, WCC’s associate vice president of student services: “From a cost-saving perspective, if you’re coming to us for the first two years to save, then it doesn’t make sense to spend for on-campus housing. Still, for non-local students, it might work out better for them. I’ve had some of those families say that they just feel more comfortable with their son or daughter in a dorm setting than in an apartment.” [Source]
