five separate residential buildings. It also includes a Community
Building with a laundry, kitchen, meeting rooms, and administrative
offices. Students live in four-bedroom two-bath suites. Each
suite includes a living room and kitchenette. Bedrooms and living
rooms are furnished.
The Honors College Hall, Building Three, is home to first year and
upper-class Honors College students. The remaining four buildings
are reserved for students with at least one year of college experience.
Residence Life offers six campus housing options. According to director
Patrick Dixon, Residence Life provides a safe, diverse, and
well-maintained environment that complements and supports the academic
mission of the University. The department creates a dynamic
living/learning experience that promotes and inspires individuals to
become empowered community members.
All students, faculty and staff are invited to celebrate the grand
