When students first move on-campus, the experience of living away from home can often be a bit overwhelming. Within a matter of days, incoming freshmen seem to be thrown into a mix of academia, sports, and other extracurricular activities, while at the same time trying to maintain self-sufficiency. Between meeting new people, reading Plato's Republic, auditioning for a role in the new play at Robsham Theatre, and the constant bustle of doing laundry, the fast pace of college life takes some time to get use to.
However, the close-knit living fostered by the community style rooms in Medeiros Hall make this transition a bit easier to handle. Whether it's playing Frisbee in the front yard, taking a trip downtown, or a friendly challenge between roommates to some video games, the Honors House Program makes it easy for its residents to balance their high academic expectations with leisurely free-time activities.
