Students check in during move-in at Letts Hall

Through services including on-campus housing, residential programs, involvement opportunities, and off-campus resources, our goal is to allow students to focus on their education in and out of the classroom. We strive to create meaningful student experiences in the residence halls and on-campus while encouraging students to learn and grow together in community.
