So you want to know about housing? You have come to the right place. Across the globe these last few weeks Class of 2017 students have been receiving their housing packets and if you all are anything like me than you are frantically searching for any kind of info on your new possible home! Quick note: If yours has yet to come, never fear. It is on its way. For those who are starting to fill out their packet though, I'm sure you have a lot of questions.
