During the 2019-2020 academic year, all of our first year students lived on campus besides 130 students. Those 130 choose to live off either to live with family, older siblings, or because they were not a traditional aged student. This past year we leased two hotels so we were able to house all of our first-years. We have no plans for leasing hotels in the near future. Additionally, we are in the process of building 5 residence halls over the next 5-7 years. Our newest will open fall of 2021
