Where We Live
Our residence halls provide around-the-clock opportunities for meeting new people, showing off mad video game skills, and creating an unforgettable college experience.
Welcome Home, Foresters!
Beyond enjoying the convenience of living and learning in the same space, students who choose to live on campus get more from their college experience. Growth happens when students actively contribute to the life of the College, engage in learning outside of the classroom, and develop life-long friendships! When a hall becomes your home, the possibilities are limitless.
Each hall is staffed with a Resident Assistant whose main function is to build community in the residence halls, assist students as they transition to college, and enforce college policies. Additionally, Residence Life staff provide a variety of fun and educational events for students.
Living on campus allows students to participate in a wealth of activities including: football on the quad, ice cream socials, and late night conversations. Students hang out in the residence hall lounges watching The Big Bang Theory and playing the newest version of Madden NFL. They also spend hours studying chemistry in the McClure lounge, getting math help from their neighbors, and discussing various majors and classes.
