Coming Events

Look here for events happening in the residence halls.

Room Selection Information

Room selection continues for students (new or returning) who have completed their housing files:

  • housing deposit paid
  • application completed and submitted
  • meningitis vaccine information provided to Health Services

If you have not yet selected your room and dining plan, please be sure to do so as soon as possible.  Because we are nearly in July, the number of available rooms shrinks daily.  Roommate requests may also not be able to be fulfilled any longer.

Television on campus – Important information

For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link:  Television Channel Guide.

Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.

An NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).

An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.
