Social, Educational, and Service-Learning Programs are offered and organized by the staff in all of our residential facilities. These programs range from movie nights on the residence hall floors to volunteering for Habitat for Humanity. Most often, the RAs on each floor host social programming so that the residents can get to know each other and enjoy their housing experience even more. Also, feel free to ask your RD/GHD or RA of the upcoming programs in each hall, as there is something for everyone.
