Dear residents and families,

We realize that our decision to move the process up from next spring to this October surprised a majority of our residents and their families, and we are sympathetic to your concerns. We are here to support everyone throughout the process. We believe that the timeline change is in the best interest of our students. Life on campus and academic success are strongly linked, and in the past students were forced to forgo our spring on-campus process to sign off-campus leases in time. Now, they don't have to.

We hope you'll to read this letter from our Director of Residential Life and University Housing, Suzanne Howell, that shares why the decision was made and details about the support we are providing for residents throughout the process.

Focus On — Faculty Masters

George Catalano, Faculty Master of the Apartment Communities

George D. Catalano

Apartment Communities

Each faculty master has been tasked with developing a "Big Idea" — a theme they're focusing on with their communities for the next three years.

Catalano's "Big Idea" resonates closely with his residents and himself — a community of peace.  "I see three aspects to this," he explains. "Being at peace with yourself, being at peace with others and being at peace with the planet." 

"My impression, after talking to several students, is that they're really searching for a way to give back. They want to make a difference, but with their schedules it's hard for them to come up with ways to do that. I think my role as Master will be shepherding them in this."
