"Home Away from Home"
All campus residence halls offer a "Home away from Home" atmosphere where students can study, relax, fellowship and socialize amid comfort and convenience. Students learn to master the art of living independently in a clean, secure environment.
All rooms feature cable television, two telephone jacks, internet access, twin size regular beds with mattresses, desks and chairs. There are also lounges for casual get-togethers or study sessions. Students may bring any other accessories (blanket, spreads, etc.) needed for individual comfort.
All residence halls have full-time, live-in Residence Directors who manage the operation of the hall. Residence Directors develop a trust relationship with the students, and serve as mentors, advisors and confidantes in addition to their role in the maintenance and care of the physical facility. They are sincere in their concern for the goals, abilities and limitations of each resident. They plan and supervise activities for the hall, maintain room assignments, interview and supervise Resident Assistants and generally maintain an atmosphere conducive to academic pursuits and college social life.
Every wing of a residence hall also has a Resident Assistant, a student leader employed by the Housing Office to help build a sense of community within the hall.
