Student Services

We continuously strive to create a living learning environment that both challenges and supports the student’s holistic growth through program engagement, in an environment that is safe, functional, and non-threatening, while supporting the academic and institutional mission and goals of the College.

The Residence Life staff is firmly committed to the concept that residence halls are to provide a place where students grow, experience the richness of community living, and engage in learning outside the classroom. These dynamic communities form and contribute to each student’s overall learning intellectually, culturally, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. On campus living provides students with the proper balance of challenge and support, which allows them to take responsibility for themselves and for their development.

Student housing and the residence life environment are important components of the educational experience. The living and learning theory emphasizes understanding, skill building, and fosters interpersonal relationships through residence halls governance and education as well as recreational programs. Students within the residence halls share mutual obligations to one another and learn respect for others within the community environment. All students are expected to treat one another with respect, which means that theft, profanity, excessive noise, and other forms of intrusive behaviors will not be tolerated in the residential environment.

We view the developmental aspects of hall programs as an important adjunct to the overall educational growth of those students who live in the halls. Therefore, most of our residence programs attempt to fulfill at least one of these student development aims:

  • Teach intellectual, physical, and social skills, which are a necessary element of self-confidence.
  • Assist students in formulation of personal integrity and priorities, through group discussion, films, and presentations.
  • Help students develop their interpersonal skills and realize the values of friendship and community through team activities and group functions.
  • Give students the knowledge and skills to live independently after college life by providing information on topics such as buying, investing money, renting, insurance, etc.
  • Help students choose a lifestyle, which may include career planning, family counseling, sex and birth control education, etc.
