Each spring rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors participate in a housing lottery process to select their rooms for the next academic year.
The college is committed to residential living because of its positive impact on students.
The benefits of residential living include increased academic success, higher graduation rates, stronger interpersonal skills, and exposure to more diverse ideas and cultures.
In addition, students receive support from Residence Life Office (RLO) professional and student staff, Physical Plant, and Campus Police. RLO assigns one student to live on each hall or building and serve as a resident adviser.
With the help of these staff members, upperclass students continue to build relationships and foster a sense of community and accountability on campus.
