The Application Process Living In College Part (3)Posted by at February 4, 2012 in Collage
The problem was that she didn’t know anyone there, and for that reason was a bit hesitant about going. Because Liz really wanted to do that particular course, her parents encouraged her to go to Melbourne and apply to live on campus there.
They told her that if she got into a college they would help out with the fees. Liz put enormous effort into doing her application for college, as she had decided that if she didn’t get in she wasn’t moving to Melbourne—she would be too lonely.
In the end it all worked out really well. Liz got into her course at uni, and was offered a place in one of the colleges. Speaking to her a few weeks ago, I found out that in her first year in Melbourne she made some great friends and ended up moving out with them in second year.
She is still there finishing her degree, and having an unreal time with her new friends in the house they are renting together. If you are moving away from home for the sole reason of going to a uni located too far away from your parents’ home to do a daily commute, living at college is probably your best option.
