    Default Paraphrasing

    The university has announced that it will build a dormitory in a city. So, students have more time to interact with people and so on. 2 students discuss the notice.

    The man said; the point about students interacting more with people in the community.. that doesn't seem to be a bad thing, does it?

    The woman said; but the more time spent off campus, in town , the less time spent on campus.What about all the clubs, shows, discussions, a-all the campus happening that just kind of .... happen? It's important to be on campus to really take advantage of those things. Having a different living experience shouldn't be given up at the expenses of not being as much a part of the university community.

    Can I say, the woman states that living off campus takes away students time from other campus activities , so she doesn't think getting some life experience should be at the cost of not going to clubs or shows.

    Thank you for spending your time helping me to paraphrase.

    Not just clubs and shows, but all the things that students particpate in on campus.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I think it should be "at the expense" not "expenses."
