As the Executive Director of Residential Life, I extend my personal welcome to returning students, a big hello for the new students living on campus for the first time and your families, and a nice to meet you to those interested in joining our team. By visiting us here online, you recognize the value of the on-campus experience.
Whether you are a student living on campus, a parent or family member of a resident, or a potential team member, you are a partner in making the on-campus experience a key part of students successfully transitioning into and through college, succeeding academically and developing personally. I hope you’ll learn more about our housing options, employment options, and who we are as a department.
We know the work we do impacts students directly. From higher GPAs, to higher graduation rates, and a more enriching college experience, living on campus provides it all. Our staff of more than 300 student leadership positions and 200 staff members is reinvigorated at the start of a new academic year to continue providing these serves and foundation for success to residents. All of our residential communities are purposefully designed to support students throughout their college career. Whether it’s entertaining community programs, engaging study groups, or the caring in-hall staffs, I encourage students to take advantage of all the services, programs, and support staff in on-campus communities.
We are all here to make the on-campus experience at LSU a truly transformational and invaluable one for all our residents. I hope you Love Purple and Live Gold during your time on campus. If you need anything, just let us know.
On behalf of my entire staff, welcome to LSU Res Life!
Steven D. Waller
