A message to residence hall students:

“We encourage you to become involved in your new environment. Take some risks and try new activities. Our residents - your neighbors - represent a wide array of backgrounds, cultures, lifestyles and attitudes. We hope you will challenge yourself to become acquainted with those who are different from you. Student Housing provides a rich and unique opportunity for you to learn more about yourself and others. Immerse yourself and grow.”
