The area of Residence Life has an educational focus related to the process of the social development of students. To fulfill its responsibilities as an institution of higher learning, therefore, the College seeks to provide an atmosphere where students can live, learn, and mature under circumstances conducive to fostering self-respect, self-direction, social dignity, and academic progress.
An individual must be admitted to the College and must pay all non-refundable prepayments before an application for housing is accepted. The housing application must be submitted each year. Acceptance of a housing assignment constitutes an agreement by the student to the terms and conditions accompanying the assignment. Failure to comply with such terms and conditions, and other regulations as published and announced by the College, may result in loss of housing privileges.
Full-time hall directors, supervisors, and resident assistants manage residence halls. The hall director supervises student staff in the hall, manages physical facilities, and assists in the coordination of “check-in,” closing, and room changes. He/she also assists with personal concerns. The hall director lives in the residence hall and coordinates evening programs and activities. Resident assistants, who are upper-class students, are carefully selected and trained to assist residents with housing and personal concerns. They live on the floor they manage.
