- ABOUT LAKELAND
Lakeland College's residential campus offers unique living opportunities along with a sense of community that provides many social and academic advantages. Students living on campus receive higher grades, complete more credit hours per semester, and enjoy more leadership opportunities thanks to the support of roommates, peers and hall staff.
Lakeland's diverse residence halls offer students many living options. Traditional residence halls such as Grosshuesch, Muehlmeier, and Krueger Halls, pod-style living in Brotz Hall, suite-style living in Friedli and Hofer Halls, and apartment living in Kurtz, Morland, and Hill Houses provides students with the option to choose the living environment which best fits their needs.
Along with the many housing options, Lakeland offers a plethora of leadership opportunities within the residence halls. Community Assistants, Hall Council Members, Resident Assistants, Apartment Coordinators, and Academic Programming Assistants are student positions created to help peers adjust to college life, act as resources, ensure a safe and clean environment, and provide social and academic activities. If interested in any of these highly sought after positions, please see a Residence Hall Director or the Director of Residence Life.
The Department of Residence Life actively supports the mission of Lakeland College. Specifically, departmental goals include:
We recognize students learn outside as well as inside the classroom. Through interaction in residential communities, students are exposed to an array of diverse ideas, values, and cultures prompting understanding and respect for individual differences.
Living in a residence hall is a microcosm of larger societal constructs. With that, goals of Residence Life are to provide students with the tools necessary for them to effectively communicate and work with others; make decisions based on moral and ethical values; and acquire problem-solving skills necessary for success in future endeavors.
The development of a responsible, mature adult is how we measure our success as a department. We recognize the struggles inherent in the college experience. Students are exposed to many intellectual, moral, and spiritual challenges and it is paramount that we provide the necessary resources to support students through these challenges. As a department, we strive to assist each student develop a congruent set of values which can best serve them in future challenges.
