Learning Communities & Theme Housing
Living on a Theme Housing floor is a great way to connect with other students around a common interest, build community and enhance your residential and learning experience.
The Global Awareness theme floor nurtures an understanding and appreciation of the arts, languages, contributions, and current events of global cultures through programming, faculty and staff involvement, and community living. Those participating in this theme community will have the opportunity to interact with faculty members across campus, learn about study abroad possibilities, practice language skills, and share interests with other community members. All first-year students are invited to participate!
