- Engaging with other scholars within the community to build lasting bonds, friendships, and networks.
- Experience a living setting that is active and supportive and is an exciting place to live and learn.
- Common place of residence that allows students a chance to plan, attend and explore various opportunities and resources, both within the community and the University as a whole.
- Peer mentoring/advising within residence halls.
- Special programming to familiarize scholars with various topics – including social, community, academic, personal, and professional.
