First Year Living Experience

Our First Year Living Experience Community houses our residence life staff and first year students only. This community differs from other living environments in a variety of ways. First, this environment has a higher student staff to resident ratio compared to other buildings. First year students who have paid their housing application fee and have selected to live in this community and have a signed contract agreeing to terms are eligible. It is filled on a "first come, first serve" basis and is located in a traditional residence hall. Our office sometimes receives roommate requests. If both students have paid their housing application fee, have a signed First Year Living contract on file, and have both been selected for this community, we do our best to grant their roommate requests, however, we can't always guarantee that that roommate requests will be granted. Residents living in this community are encouraged and expected to take an active role in the community by participating in a variety of activities and programs that are geared toward a first year living experience. Students respect the quiet hour policy by giving consideration to their noise level-particularly during business hours. Finally, students agree to meet with their assigned Freshman Mentor a minimum of twice a semester and agree to attend a minimum of five first year focused programs during their first fall semester.
