Office of Residential Experience

The Office of Residential Experience creates an on-campus home for students by developing a safe, engaging, and inclusive environment that supports residential student learning and emphasizes personal and social responsibility. Committed to the College's Catholic, Lasallian, and Liberal Arts traditions, Residential Experience intentionally fosters a living environment that promotes the academic, spiritual, emotional, and personal growth of each resident.  

As a result of living within the residence halls, residents will:

a) Have the ability to connect and feel a sense of belonging in community.

b) Increase self awareness and reflect on personal, social, and spiritual values.

c) Develop a sense of personal background and cultural contributions.

d) Gain an appreciation of others’ backgrounds and cultural contributions.

e) Understand campus and community standards and expectations.

f) Identify campus standards of inclusive excellence.

g) Engage in face-to-face communication.
