These past two years living on residence have been life-changing. I’ve made some super close friends and some amazing memories. I would not trade this experience for the world!

Ahh March… the days get longer, the weather gets warmer, and the groans of exhausted students get just a little louder over the frantic tapping of laptop keyboards. It seems like just as the end comes into view, all motivation to study is lost and the desire to do school is gone.
