How was your tripling experience? Were you intimidated by it before you started? What was positive about it? What would you tell new students who are uneasy? What do you want to share with others about living in a triple? Submit the completed Your Stories-Tripling Form and your story may be used on the residence life and housing Web page and in publications.

Your Community

As a staff, we believe a residence hall is more than a place for a break from classes. It is a vibrant and active community, the center for student life. We encourage you to develop an awareness of the many opportunities that this presents daily, and challenge you to utilize this setting to increase your leadership abilities.

We feel that it is very important to ensure that the rights of each individual are respected. It is important that your actions contribute to the development of a strong, balanced community within the residence hall.
