Residence Hall Programming

RA Programming Provides Positive Outcomes

Living in the residence halls is more than just a place for our residents to relax, sleep, or stay between classes. It is also a learning experience within a community environment that provides positive outcomes for both the resident and their residential community.

  • Programming is an effective way to get residents involved in the floor, hall, and campus community. Programming develops a sense of unity by involving a variety of students in a learning process. Students who become actively involved in programming tend to feel more connected to the University because of their exposure to campus resources and involvement in activities.
  • Programming encourages students to seek new opportunities that they may normally not experience. Likewise, programming challenges students and staff to learn and examine values, attitudes, and beliefs.
  • Programming promotes residence halls as true learning centers. Learning is a continuous process that occurs both in and outside of the classroom. Programming can be an important influence in shaping the way a student learns.
