First-year students at convocation

We strive to ensure that all students are healthy, successful, and engaged.

One way we help develop our students is by requiring them to live on campus for their first four semesters. Through experience and research we know that on-campus students have higher rates of retention, satisfaction, and academic success. A common residential experience helps students connect with peers; receive support from faculty and staff; and foster academic and social development.

We look forward to your arrival and invite you to start exploring Learning Communities now!
