Centennial Towers resident

My favorite experience in on-campus experience was connecting with the people on my floor!

Centennial Halls resident

My favorite memory from campus housing was my freshman year living in JMac. The floor I lived on had very friendly and supportive people on it. We all became very close very quickly and are all still friends.
