Notice: We do not normally house new freshmen in Soltz Hall or in our on-campus apartments as we believe the best environment for new freshmen, or any new students who have not yet lived on-campus, is in a traditional residence hall. Students living in traditional residence halls with shared bedrooms are more likely to develop new relationships with people of diverse backgrounds, build a stronger sense of community, appreciate and respect the rights of others, and become involved in campus activities and organizations. All of which are important in their growth and development as young adults and to enhance their college experience.
