For many students, the residence hall will provide the first opportunity for group living. Group living offers many and varied opportunities and responsibilities. It is the chance to make new friends and to learn more about oneself through relationships with others. Living with others can be exciting and challenging but frustrating at times. The most successful living environment is one in which residents show consideration and respect for others. Each resident has a role to play in establishing an atmosphere conducive to personal and intellectual development. As is true in any group situation, basic standards are necessary for the convenience and protection of all. The Residence Hall policies included in the Student Handbook are designed to provide information about students' opportunities and responsibilities as a resident of Limestone University.
