A Place to Live and Learn
Your college experience isn’t just about getting your degree. Its also about being part of a diverse community and having experiences outside of academics. It’s a time to step outside your comfort zone and make new connections and memories.
When you’re here, you’ll feel right at home. Speaking of home, we’ve got three residence halls on campus and one just minutes off campus, plus slots of dining options to fuel you up. And there’s always something going on—with over 30 student clubs and organizations, campuswide events—and 12 NCAA Division II athletic teams for you to cheer on.
