The Office of Student Life strives to support the healthy and holistic development of all students. Open to Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors, the Substance Free Community offers a space for those students who genuinely desire to live in an environment where all residents and their guests agree to keep the area free of all alcohol, drugs, and tobacco products. Residents agree to create an environment in which they are respectful of one another and, as a result, foster a living atmosphere that is respectful of healthy lifestyles. Members of the community also have the opportunity to work with their Resident Assistants to plan activities and outings that promote a positive community.
Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year are due February 19, 2016. Fill out the brief application to apply. All applicants will need to sign the substance free housing agreement which can be found in the application.
