Residential Life personnel are responsible for the development and implementation of programming that fosters an effective living and learning environment. The goal is to enhance the social, educational, cultural and personal growth of each student. A positive climate in the residence hall promotes self-discipline, self-direction, and participation in the community.

The residence halls provide an opportunity for group living, academic achievement and social adjustment in a democratic environment. The degree to which a student benefits depends on his/her participation in the planning and implementation of activities and his/her acceptance of personal responsibility for growth and development.
