Residential Support

Students living on campus receive specialized support that leads to success inside and outside of the classroom. Here, students can meet with team members who understand the challenges of residential life and help them achieve their educational goals. Every student has the ability to succeed by actively engaging in the learning process and utilizing the resources available.
