Student Life Staff

Student Life Staff includes our Dorm Parents, Assistants, Tutors, and Recreation staff, as well as the Student Life Supervisors.  When students walk through our doors, they become part of a close-knit and supportive campus family. This team helps to ensure that our students thrive in their boarding life.
