***New for 2016-2017***

  1. Due to the continued interest in Substance-Free Communities, next year's community will be located on 3rd Hallowell Hall.  This will allow an increased number of students to choose this opportunity.
  2. The "New PPR" project begins breaking ground this summer!  A new dorm will be constructed in the PPR "neighborhood" during the 2016-2017 year. OSE will be working closely with all residents of PPR to ensure that the construction does not significantly impact the residential experience in these communities.
  3. Palmer and Pittenger will be receiving some exciting renovations for Fall 2016--specifically the kitchen will be receiving a makeover: newer countertops, kitchen tables, drinking fountain, and lounge furniture.
  4. Mary Lyons will be completing its second phase of renovations this Summer--these will include all in-suite bathrooms and a new driveway.
  5. Dana and Hallowell will be receiving some renovations this Summer--specifically new paint.
  6. A dedicated student parking lot will begin construction in the Summer and is anticipated to open for Fall semester!  The parking lot will be located near Ben West.  More information about student parking will be sent to students mid-late April.
