Ohio State to require sophomores to live on campus

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State University is aiming to improve graduation and retention rates with a new rule requiring sophomore students to live on campus.

The Dayton Daily News reports ( http://bit.ly/TUVxfR ) that the university is set to become the largest college in the country to require sophomores to live on campus. The initiative is slated to take effect in fall 2016.

Colleges that require sophomores to live on campus say students perform better academically, are more likely to graduate and feel more connected to their universities and their majors.

Ohio, Bowling Green State and Kent State universities already require sophomores to live on campus.

Ohio State plans to tear down eight buildings and construct a dozen new ones, beginning later this year and wrapping up by August 2016.
