Towers East

Towers East offers students a living environment that is an ideal mix of new and returning students.  The community-style living in Towers East is perfect for new students and for those returning students who wish to continue to live in a community-style environment.  The community-style living in Towers East ensures a high level of involvement with other members of the community.  Specialized training for the Resident Assistants ensure a supportive environment for the unique needs of traditional students who are attending college for the first time.  The Resident Assistants and Hall Director are familiar with the typical (and not so typical!) needs and concerns of first year college students - and the staff is there to help.

Each floor can house up to 35 students, including the Resident Assistant.  Each floor has a separate shower area, with private shower stalls. A separate room has private toilet facilities.  Each student room has a sink, which students find very convenient.  There is a lounge with comfortable furniture, a microwave, and a television on each floor.
