Residence Life

Residence Life at CSE

The Residence Life Program at the College of Saint Elizabeth is based on the belief that Residence Hall living provides a unique opportunity for students to gain a variety of experiences which supplement and complement formal classroom education.

Informal education, which takes place in the Residence Halls through programming, includes the personal development, appreciation for diversity, and democratic community living, all of which are essential aspects of the total college experience. In the process of student development, responsibility and accountability are promoted and expected.

The program seeks to make the Residence Halls a place where students have the opportunity to:

  1. Develop a commitment to moral and ethical values and behavior
  2. Understand and respect persons of diverse backgrounds and cultures
  3. Communicate effectively
  4. Develop a sense of community and pride in their living environment
  5. Learn responsible citizenship
  6. Develop a personal sense of spirituality
  7. Learn accountability for individual and group behavior in order to maintain a positive living environment
  8. Build a community that is inclusive, cohesive, and caring
