Themed Community Application
Anderson Hall Second Floor, East Wing
The Music Floor in Anderson rocks to its own beat! This community is made up of students who display a passion and interest for music. Though many of the residents who live here are music majors and minors, several are not. All residents choose to live in this environment for the community engagement, dedication to the arts, and focused programming. This floor is extremely convenient for music students due to its proximity to the chapel and music buildings. From the shuffling of instruments to the singing of show tunes, the Music Floor is one of the strongest communities on campus!
Catalyst Program: Practical Change for an Inclusive World
What is your vision for creating justice and equity for all? Have you thought about becoming a more active participant in changing your world? If so, the Catalyst Program is the place for you. You will be participating in an intentional community focused on issues of social change, locally and globally. Through community service, faculty interaction, frequent discussions and co-curricular programming, you will create a safe community for open dialogue and action on difficult issues. Being a part of the Catalyst Program will require regular attendance to programs, active engagement in weekly discussions, participation in the beginning-of-the-year retreat, and the initiation of practical change in our community. This hall will combine first-year students from seminars with an activism focus and returning students who are committed to becoming advocates for change. In addition, community members who have not completed their community service requirement for the university will do so through various service projects advertised through Fairmont.
Upper Class and Transfer Students
The Grove Apartments is an intentional living community focused on upper class and transfer students.
