College-in-the-Woods, known as CIW (we love our acronyms here), residents have been living the "suite" life here since 1972. CIW has the best barbecue on campus, a vegan station, the Woods Diner, the one-and-only Casino-in-the-Woods and our Family Weekend event can't be beat.

The five buildings in CIW are right in the middle of campus with easy access to The Union, Engineering building and buses. We have both suite-style and corridor-style rooms, a co-rec football field, basketball and volleyball courts and our own library in Tuscarora.

Our Collegiate Professor, Steve Ortiz is an associate professor of history, specializing in 20th century US history and runs two of our learning communities – International Relations and Cultural Exchange and Politics, Law and Society.

New for fall 2020 – CP Steve Ortiz will be offering a new learning community, Environmental Action and Studies. Check back here for more information coming soon.
