Subject:  Room Selection for 2012-2013 Academic Year

Date: April 16, 2012


Dear Families,


Students will select their housing for next year through General Room Selection Nights (GRS) on April 16, 17, 19, 23, and 24th between 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Housing selection as you may know is very important to our students. Since your student may be talking to you about selection, we wanted to provide you some resources to help you understand our process.  We filmed GRS last year and created two videos which help to explain the process and share student’s advice with future participants:
This video is what a typical selection night is like
This video is advice from students who participated last year


This year, we have created an sheet for students to rank their choices to help them plan.  It can be found on the student portfolio GRS website under “Updates”.  We also have two more webchats planned for students to ask questions about housing selection on April 15 and 22nd from  8-10 p.m. If your student cannot  participate in the webchats, but has questions, please encourage them to contact Residential Life at or 860-685-3550.
