Upperclassmen will have an option of living in one of the college’s rent houses for the fall semester. This housing option, which is not co-ed, will be $2,500 per semester.
Scholarships and student aid can be used to cover the cost. A meal plan will be optional, cable, wi-fi and utilities will be provided in these houses for no extra charge.
No resident assistants will be provided in the houses, and there will be no curfew or clean room checks. However, Mayo did say that there will be monthly safety checks made by an area coordinator.
Different from living in Dickson Hall, the housing option will be offered year-round.
“It’s just like a lease.” Mayo says, “You have till the year is up and, unless you choose to leave, you can stay for another year.”
Students will be able to select their own roommates. No drugs, alcohol, sexual misconduct, or destruction of property will be allowed in the houses.
“Even though we are trying to treat y’all like adults as best we can, there are still certain rules we must uphold as an institution,” says Mayo.
There will be visiting hours for the opposite gender. On weekdays, visiting hours will be from 3 p.m.-11 p.m., and from 3 p.m.-12 a.m. on weekends.
To be eligible for this housing option, a student must have lived in a residence hall four semesters, be 21 years of age or older, and in good standing with the college.
This new housing option doesn’t just come with a house. Mayo also said seminars will be offered on wedding planning, financial planning, job searching and other topics like these.
