For this opinion style piece, I think it would be really important to discuss the different housing options that students have: on campus residence halls, Vulcan Village apartments, off-campus housing and commuting. I would be interested in seeing what some of the other PASSHE schools pay for their on campus housing. I know a few people that attend some of those schools so their opinions and information would be vital to this piece. Personally, I am paying almost $4,000 per semester just to live in the residence halls alone. I have lived here for the past three years and I constantly wonder if living off campus would have been cheaper for me over the course of four years. I would talk to students that live at Vulcan Village, and also students that live in a few off-campus housing options (houses, apartments, townhouses.) Hopefully I would be able to get a statement from President Jones or someone with the authority to do so on the topic. The way my piece would be structured would be having my opinion the most apparent in the introduction and first paragraph, but then having the next body paragraphs be information from other people I have talked to and also their opinions about the situation. Finally I would write my conclusion to recap everything that I had discussed previously and to see what my conclusion came to. I would make sure that my opinion was quite apparent but not the main focus of the piece because other opinions are what will make up the story. This piece could also include some opinions on the residence halls and why students that attend Cal do or do not think it is worth it to live in them.
