New Experiences Await You

First-year students wonder how living on campus could change their life. Picture this: ten years from now, you and your co-worker are swapping college stories at lunch. Who is in your story? It may be your roommate and your friends you met in the residence halls. The point is who you meet on campus, how you choose to get involved, and how you challenge yourself will widen your perspective in ways that help you develop who you are. Expanding your connections is what college is all about, and living in the residence halls is the perfect place to start!
