Please review our lock-out policy if you have any questions.


Hall Council is the student government within each residence hall. Hall Council programming, activities and equipment is made possible through residence hall dues. The budget for each residence hall is determined by the residents who pay the annual hall dues of $20.00. The Hall Council then decides how to spend these funds. Input from all residents helps in this decision making process. Participation in Hall Council is very important. Activities planned by the Hall Council and paid for by the hall dues include hall dinners, theme parties, guest speakers, health awareness programs, study breaks, and skill-building workshops. This organization represents only one of the many ways to get involved in campus living.

What is the most fulfilling part about creating a community? I love being able to connect with residents as well as being a positive role model to them. I enjoy helping them navigate through life and teaching them how to think for themselves yet being able to learn from their peers when needed. Creating a sense of community allows everyone to make new friends as well.
