Residence Halls

 

A major component of going to college is learning to live on your own.  How to do your own laundry.  How to make sure you set the alarm clock and then how to make certain you get up when it goes off!  How to get along with people who are very different from us or how to get along with people who are just like us.  Sometimes, that last one is the hardest to do.
