This is living
Residence life is all about connections. It's the place where you get to know your classmates on a deeper level, spontaneously socialize and create lifelong memories and friendships. That's part of why all first-year students live on campus. And with options like themed housing and academic communities, you can align your living situation with your own goals and interests.
Each hall has its own personality, but together they're a community. Compare SMU residence halls (PDF format).
