Once you’re on campus, you are in charge of all of your own choices, from where you live to what you eat. The choices you make will affect your safety and health, so explore your options before committing to any one thing. While an apartment five miles away may be cheap, it also involves a commute. And while dining hall donuts each morning sound delicious, your heart won’t thank you. College may seem like the time for experimentation, but learning what behaviors are dangerous ahead of time will keep you safe in the long run.
