To take full advantage of the holistic approach to education, all single, full-time students who have not reached the age of 22 and are not living at home or with immediate relatives in the area are required to live in college residence halls. Many students ask us what are good things to bring to outfit their dorm rooms. We've created this handy list to help you out!
Our residence life staff, made up of resident directors and resident assistants, is here to serve you. Each hall has one or two resident assistants, who report to one resident director for each building. We encourage you to get to know your residence life staff!
