                                                  Dear Student,

                                                  Congratulations on becoming a member of the Missouri State University community!

                                                  Choosing to attend this excellent University was the first of many decisions you will be
                                                  making during your academic career. Staff members in the Department of Residence
                                                  Life and Services are well-trained and dedicated professionals who will assist you to
                                                 “Be Here Now.”

                                                   Living on campus is convenient, is economical and can be the gateway to your
                                                  success. According to the American Council on Education (ACE), students who live on
                                                  campus have a 10 to 15 percent better chance of doing well in college than students
                                                  living off campus. On-campus students have better grades, take more credit hours and
                                                  are more likely to earn a baccalaureate degree.

                                                  Learning is the primary reason for pursuing a degree in higher education, and our
                                                  departmental mission is to enhance your college experience by providing activities that
                                                  will supplement your classroom knowledge and prepare you for your career. Our goal is
                                                  to have you participate with others in an atmosphere where you develop the skills
                                                  necessary to become a member of the larger global community. All of these experiences
                                                  will serve you well in your life after you graduate!

                                                  Best wishes on your discovery,

downloaded (or uploaded). For example, if a student
downloads a movie from iTunes, or streams a Netflix movie
that would normally have taken 10 gigabytes, 90% of that will
be ignored and only 1 gigabyte (10%) will show up on the
student’s quota. Because we have unused bandwidth during
this time, Bytes@Night offers an ideal time for students to
perform larger downloads. Additionally, most operating
system updates that are scheduled for nighttime updates will
not affect a student’s quota nearly as much.

Computer support help desk
A residence life help desk has been established to assist
students with their computing needs and questions. Any
residence hall student with a computer-related question is
encouraged to contact the Computer Support Help Desk at
836-6100. Students are encouraged to leave a message after
normal business hours.

                            An electronic card-access system is in operation in all
                            residence halls. This security system provides monitored
                            access to the residence halls. All guests must enter
                            through the front doors of each residence hall unless
                            accompanied by a resident using his/her access card.

                            24-hour staffing
                            Each residence hall provides 24-hour staffing of the
                            reception desk. All reception desks are equipped with
                            several items for student check-out such as vacuums,
                            games, recreational equipment and engravers to identify
                            personal property. Along with the reception desk, the
                            residence hall directors, assistant hall directors and

                            resident assistants live in each residence hall to provide
                            immediate emergency services. Emergency services are
                            also provided by custodial and maintenance staff 24 hours
                            per day.

Disability access
Most residence halls are accessible to students with
physical disabilities. Certain living units in the residence
halls are specifically designed for students using
wheelchairs and those with hearing impairments.
Approved service animals are permitted in all residence
halls. Accessible parking is available for students with
physical disabilities as well. We suggest that any student
with a disability, as defined by the Rehabilitation Act of
1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, who plans to
reside in University housing contact the Disability Resource
Center at 417-836-4192 or 417-836-6792 (TTY) and/or the
Department of Residence Life and Services at 417-836-5536 or
417-836-5503 (TTY). Early self-disclosure of special needs will
help us to better accommodate those needs.

For those students with a need to possess a vehicle at
Missouri State, some parking is provided near the
residence halls. In addition, Sunvilla Tower contains an
underground parking garage facility. Sunvilla Tower
residents may rent a parking space, by semester, on
a first-come, first-served basis. The University encourages
students to use the Missouri State shuttle system
whenever possible.

University Recreation Center
Missouri State students will soon have a new fitness
facility where they can run, swim, lift weights or shoot
baskets to their hearts’ content. The University
Recreation Center, expected to open in 2011, will have a
variety of resources, including a pool with lap lanes and
a water-current channel. Students seeking adventure
will be able to tackle rock climbing and bouldering
walls. Teams can challenge each other on the basketball
courts. Those just wanting to unwind after a tough day
of classes can find relaxation in a spa and sauna. The

center will be open to all students

                            Laundry facilities
                            Each residence hall provides ample laundering facilities,
                            at no additional charge, including washing and drying
                            machines, folding tables and ironing boards.

                            Custodial services
                            The residence life custodial staff cleans all public
                            restrooms and public areas on a regular basis. Students
                            are responsible for cleaning their own rooms, suites
                            and apartments.

Safe walk service
The Department of Safety and Transportation provides an
on-campus safety walking service for Missouri State
students (male and female) during the fall and spring
semesters, except during breaks and holidays. This service
operates daily to and from locations on campus during the
hours of darkness.

Shuttle service
The Missouri State shuttle system operates daily until
midnight while classes are in session. The BearLine route
includes various stops near the residence halls and
academic buildings.

Police Substation
In cooperation with the Springfield Police Department, the
University operates a Police Substation located on campus.
Officers assigned to the substation provide police service
to the Missouri State campus and the surrounding
University community.

     Student common areas
     To provide an alternative to student living areas, each
     residence hall is designed with grand lounges and other
     student gathering areas. These areas are the perfect “get
     away” for group study, recreation and places to meet
     guests in a common area. It is typical to find recreation
     equipment, comfortable lounge furniture and TVs in
     these areas.

     Valuing diversity
     The residence life staff and student leaders at Missouri
     State are committed to strengthening the relationships
     and levels of understanding among people by supporting
     the diversity that exists on our campus and in the world
     around us. We encourage each student to see this as a
     lifelong learning process in which we continue to develop
     the skills and attitudes necessary to be positive and
     productive members of society. Developing these skills
     and attitudes involves a commitment to valuing human
     diversity. Therefore, we encourage acceptance and
     appreciation of people of all backgrounds and differences.
     Holding to the belief that society is strengthened by the
     acceptance of human diversity and the ideas that
     generate from that diversity, we encourage staff and
     students to reach out to each other and develop positive
     relationships. Each person has worth and should be

                            What is sustainability?

What can you do to
be more sustainable?
Conserve! Conserve energy by turning off lights when a
room is vacant and unplugging items when not in use. Shut
windows if running heat or air conditioning. Conserve water
by shortening your shower time and turning the faucet off
while brushing teeth or shaving.

Reduce! Reduce the amount of waste you produce by
preparing or taking only the amount of food that you will eat.
Reduce the amount of paper you waste by printing only
what is necessary. Reduce your carbon footprint by riding
public transportation such as BearLine around campus, take
a bike or walk for great exercise!

Reuse! Donate your reusable items by participating in
Residence Life and Service’s closing recycling program, Bear
Share, at the end of the academic year or by dropping items
off at a local donation center anytime during the year.

Recycle! Recycle every item that can be recycled and
promote the world’s recycling by purchasing and utilizing
products made from recycled materials.

Participate! Please join us in our efforts to protect this
planet and its valuable resources by participating in
sustainable campus activities, such as the annual
RecycleMania nationwide competition, Project Greenway
and other educational programs.

and ideas for students can be found in the Residence Life

                     thing about living in Woods — I don’t have to drive and
                     waste gas. Woods is also great because the rooms each
                     have a sink so you don’t have to go to the community
                     bathroom to get ready. The first-floor lobby is my
                     favorite area other than my room; it’s a quiet little
retreat when you need a place to get away. When I want to socialize, I can
sit on the floor outside the rooms and talk for hours with the other girls.

                      the people. It is filled with such a diverse group of
                      students who are all eager to learn and explore.
                      Scholars House is always abuzz and vibrant, and
                      there is always something going on. My favorite
                      area is the kitchen — students in Scholars House
   are always cooking. One of my favorite things about living there is
   that people are always willing to cook for everyone! I love that I can
   walk through Scholars House and realize that I’m part of a special
   community at Missouri State.

                          benefit :      One of the best things about living
                     in Hutchens, or any of the residence halls, is the
                     convenience. Everything you need is within walking
                     distance from where you live. Hutchens House is
                     unique because ResNet (the technology support
                     network for residents) is located in the basement.

  If anything goes wrong with my computer, it’s just a quick elevator ride

  down to the help desk. But my favorite area of Hutchens is the dining
  hall — it’s connected to the building. This is especially great in the
  winter since you don’t even have to leave the building to eat.
