The Office of Residence Life is committed to establishing a positive atmosphere in the student residence life community, which presently consists of the Aquinas Village and McNelis Commons residence life complexes. This positive atmosphere complements the academic experience.
Through the efforts of the Residence Life staff, students have the opportunity to grow in life skills such as assertiveness, mediation, wellness, how to respect and celebrate difference, how to develop self-esteem and how to succeed academically.
In addition, the Office of Residence Life coordinates both social and educational events to facilitate the development of supportive communities. Opportunities are provided through the Resident Assistant position for the development of leadership skills.
