Student Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it; listen to what our students have to say. In a recent housing survey, here are some responses to the questions, “what do you like best about living in your community?” and, “why did you choose to live on campus this year?”

  • On the hassles of living off-campus: I “don’t have to worry about the stress of renting or dealing with a landlord.” & “I will be studying abroad during the spring semester and didn’t want the extra pressure of finding someone to sublease an off campus residence while I’m gone.”
  • On respect in the halls: “Everyone is really friendly and gathers together at times, but they are also very respectful of the appropriate times to be quiet.”
  • On our staff: “My RA… is phenomenal, makes me feel welcome, lays down rules effectively, and manages the hall well without seeming out of touch.”
  • On events & activities: “I love living in my community, because we’re all very close and it’s incredibly easy to make friends. There’s always something going on, so there’s never a dull moment.”

  • On Community Enhancements: “I like that our community office offers so many things that you can easily check out with your One Card – movies, vacuum cleaners, etc.”
