Living on campus fosters a strong sense of community, allowing students to form lasting friendships, develop interpersonal skills, and engage in a well-rounded college experience. Furthermore, the proximity to campus resources, such as the Learning Commons, Teton Grill, and Williston Area Recreations Center, provides students with easy access to the tools and opportunities necessary for their personal and academic growth.
