The primary focus of the Department of Residence Life is to support the success of our residents. The department strives to enhance the academic experience of our students and help build connections by fostering a comprehensive learning environment, which will promote maturity, responsibility, and above all, academic success. Opportunities for student engagement are abundant through positions as student staff members, Hall Government, the Residence Hall Association, the National Residence Hall Honorary and Resident Assistant Council.Our Resident Directors work directly with the students in the halls and through the mentioned student groups. Resident Directors are responsible for the supervision and advisement of these groups.
