New Students

Residence halls are more than a place to live. They are vibrant and exciting communities where students learn, grow and develop. Students make friends, develop conflict resolution skills, expand leadership skills and learn to understand each other. Plus, national research shows that students in residence halls are likely to have better grades and are more likely to graduate than their counterparts who live off campus!
