“My first year in college was shaped tremendously by my experience living on campus. I joined a First-Year Community and attended events, participated in a class, and ate meals with my hallmates and Resident Advisors. Those connections helped me navigate through the ups and downs of that first year of college, and many of us continued to live together into our sophomore and junior years.”
