What does the Outdoor Experience mean to you? Is it sitting at a picnic table doing homework? Is it laying in a hammock amongst the trees? What about a bike ride or a walk in the woods? If you are interested at all in the outdoors then Hall House might be a good place for you. With many like minded people, located near the edge of campus and close to college woods you have easy access to a variety of activities. Perhaps you're curious about the outdoors or experienced, neither matters. In Hall House many residents generally love to be outside. Like all of the Minis the Outdoor Experience is a student driven theme and the energy around this changes from year to year.
Eaton has a history of attracting folks from all walks of creative, visual, or performing arts and music. Whether you major in them or not many Eatonites enjoy the experience that the arts create. If you have an interest in the arts or merely enjoy being around folks that enjoy the arts, Eaton might be a place for you to consider living with likeminded folks. Located towards a quieter side of campus and close to College Woods, Eaton house provides a great backdrop for your own creative processes. Like all of the Minis the arts theme is a student driven theme and the energy around this changes from year to year.
How does a quiet single near college woods and Philbrook dining hall sound? How about a shady tree surrounded cabin near a stream? All of these describe the location and environment around Marston House. Marston is home to approximately 48 residents who mostly live in single rooms (there are 6 double rooms in the house) but enjoy utilizing the lounge spaces for recreation and academics. Marston residents tend to be an eclectic group with a diverse array of majors, interests, and ideas! They tend to be an engaged community and very active participants in many of the Minis-wide events that are hosted! Like all of the Minis the community in Marston is a student driven one and the energy around this changes from year to year.
Do you think a single room in a small community of first year students sounds good? Than Richardson may be the community for you. The First Year Experience is the focus of Richardson House’s community. From hanging in the lounge to going to campus programs together Richardson House is a great place to start off your college career! Richardson is a small hall of 43 students making it easy to get to know people and be included right off the bat. All but 5 of the spaces are single rooms. There are two big lounges in Richardson where students often convene to socialize or study together. Like all of the Minis the first year experience is a student driven theme and the energy around this changes from year to year.
