The Quiet Cooridor
This community brings together students who prefer a quiet, studious environment. These students set their own community standards in regards to quiet hours and use of the study lounge. These students create a community of engaged, academically focused students.
The Quiet Corridor is offered in both Goodwin Hall and the Commons Residence Hall. The members of the community in the Commons will assist with mentorship of the members of the community in Goodwin Hall.

The “L.E.A.D.” (Leading Empowering Aspiring Developing) community brings together leaders from areas such as the executive board of clubs and organizations, Student Government, Leadership Roundtable Scholars, the LEAD 3000 class and members of the Leadership certificate program to learn more about themselves as leaders and to service the campus community with their leadership skills.
