As we embark on the journey that will be the 2013-14 school year, the Department of Housing and Residential Education would like to share with you (in the following pages) information that will be of use to you this coming year.
All of the information is important, but if you are a returning student, I suggest you make note of the following changes:
- We have new names for our buildings this year. Phase I is now Peregrine Hall and Phase II is now Griffin Hall.
- The Pet Policy has been altered to allow fish in a 10-gallon tank (please read the whole policy for the specifics).
- While the University Village remains largely alcohol free, those rooms designated as part of the Graduate Community will be allowed to have alcohol in their rooms (please read the whole policy for the specifics).
- University Village Hall Council is now the Residence Hall Association. This change was actually made last year, but now the name has been changed in all our publications.
To our new residents, we welcome you and are excited you have made the choice to live with us. We are sure you will find University Village to be an exciting, fun and academically helpful place to live. Our staff works tirelessly on your behalf, and I encourage you to get to know us. In particular, get to know your Resident Assistant (RA) who lives right there on the floor with you and has many experiences similar to yours as they are all students like you!
Finally, we hope you will take advantage of the many exciting opportunities University Village will offer you this year. Here are just a few examples:
- Welcome Weekend 2013,
- Our Interactive diversity-driven community Thanksgiving dinner,
- A Partnership with Athletics featuring opportunities at many home sporting events,
- Community service opportunities,
- Various movie nights throughout each semester, and
- Many different leadership opportunities in the form of staff and student organization positions!
Enjoy your year! Enjoy University Village!
With Peregrine Pride,
Department of Housing and Residential Education
