Theme Communities

Finding your niche on a large campus can be challenging. Theme Communities offer you the benefit of living with others who share your interests or major. When applying for housing, select which community you're interested in. The selection committees will then begin placing students into communities. Space is limited and some communities have specific requirements for participation. Residents do not need to complete an application for the Honors College @ Parkview Hall  community, but they do need to be a student in the Honors College.
