Housing for New Freshmen
The Office of Residence Life is committed to making a student's first year experience as comfortable as possible. With this goal in mind, we have three residence halls designated specifically for our first year students. Leitch Hall and Fox Hall are exclusively freshman residence halls. Sheehy Hall is the location for the entire First Year H.E.A.L.L community. We also provide several floors of first year housing in our Inn and Conference Center.
The first year of college offers a wide range of new experiences: living with a roommate, managing money, organizing free time to meet academic responsibilities. The GRE (graduate resident educator) Program in the freshman halls helps you develop the skills and insights you need to succeed academically with the exciting new opportunities and challenges of college.
