residence halls is an important part of the total education of each student. The
independence of college life demands responsibility, consideration of others, and self
discipline. Living in a residence hall provides a student with challenges and
opportunities to further develop these qualities.
The University and its students have developed certain regulations and policies
regarding residence hall living in order to make possible an orderly academic
environment where individuals will be able to develop their abilities to the fullest extent.
It is expected, therefore, that all students at the University will be aware of the
regulations, and standards and respond to them in an appropriate manner. Specific rules
and regulations are covered more thoroughly in the Student Handbook.
