Choosing to live in a Residence Hall may be one of the best decisions a student can make in their college career. The staff of the Residence Life Services Department places strong emphasis on building caring communities, providing leadership opportunities, and organizing activities for our residents. We believe that the "out of classroom" learning experience is a significant part of a college education.
Within the first week of class, our staff organizes activities that provide students the opportunity to become acquainted with other residents. Throughout the semester, Community Assistants and Hall Council members arrange social, cultural, and educational programs. Examples of these programs have included: International Food Fests, Lip Sync Contests, Mock Car Accident/DUI Trials (for Alcohol Awareness Week), Big Brother/Big Sister Holiday Parties, Scavenger Hunts for Charity (local food bank), Special Olympics and others. With all of these options, students are sure to find something to participate in.
The residence halls are home to a diverse group of people. Students may meet someone from around the corner or around the world. Residents are from big cities, small towns, apartment houses, farmhouses, and everything in between. Individuals from 39 different countries live in our halls, which contributes to a rich learning environment.
People and activities are not the only reasons to live in a Residence Hall; it is also convenient and affordable. Lodging, food, local telephone service, cable and internet access, and other amenities are available for one low price.
If you are looking for a unique and memorable experience, we suggest living in one of our Residence Halls where learning is fun and the relationships are forever.
