How do I get a student I.D. card? To get an I.D. card is really easy. All you have to do is go to the office of College Student Affairs, located on the top floor of the building Boswell Campus Center, and you're just going to go in there and they're going to take your picture, and soon after that, they're going to give you your card.

Health and safety inspections or HSIs for short are conducted by your resident life staff. Every other week we check for things like trash, properly stored food, properly stored laundry, fire alarms, windows, window screens and room accessibility. If you have any questions, will be glad to answer those when you get here and we will let you know when they happen at the beginning of each semester.

Housing staff answer questions about the number of students in each hall.
So depending on room size and availability, each student will be assigned to a room with either one or two roommates. Triple rooms when three students share a space are more common in first year halls, but are less common than double rooms. Each student will receive a key to their room and will share the space. Our residence halls that you see vary in size, ranging from 80 to 300 students.
