What are Faculty Friends?
The Faculty friends program brings together students and faculty outside of the typical teaching experience in the classroom. Since 1994, Residential Life has invited all faculty to participate in students’ lives in their campus living room! Faculty can become as involved as they want by actively participating in the hall programs, lectures, and fun events. Faculty Friends are leaders, mentors, teachers, advocates, role models and friends.

Here is what some Faculty Friends have said about the program:
“I have enjoyed meeting the students and having a rollicking good time cooking, talking, laughing, and learning. I have always been impressed with the maturity and dedication of the residence hall staff. I’ve been teaching some cooking classes and I participated in a couple of great discussions last semester about the summer reading program book Mountains Beyond Mountains.”
~Ms. Judy Myhand, Instructor, School of Human Ecology
