Excerpt from The Rhododendron, 1985, Vol. 63
The move from home and a familiar environment to a college dormitory can be a very painful experience for new students. To make the-transition somewhat easier, the Office of Residence life was created to establish an atmosphere as much like home as possible. Rick Geis, Assistant Director of Resident Life stated, The purpose of Residence Life is to create a sense of community for the students.
The Office of Residence Life has been in existence since 1980. To enhance the feeling of community, the office organized residence halls into clusters, and gave each cluster a name. The four clusters are: Eastridge Cluster, consisting of White, Hoey, Doughton, and Cannon residence halls; Pinnacle Cluster, consisting of Cone, East, Lovill, and Coffey halls, and Mountaineer Apartments; Yosef Hollow, consisting of Gardner, Coltrane, Justice and Newland dormitories; and Stadium Heights Cluster, consisting of Belk, Bowie, Eggers, Winkler, and Frank residence halls.
Residence Life also created the organization known as Resident Student Association, or as it is more commonly called, rsa. This organization is responsible for planning, suggesting, and evaluating programs, services, and activities that satisfy the needs and wants of most residents. The organization encourages students to contribute their ideas and suggestions on how to make the residence halls more pleasant places to live.
