Living on campus is the best way to get involved in college life. Beside being right in the middle of everything, you’re going to forge significant friendships and build memories you’ll never forget.
Residence life in the small college environment at Linfield College provides more than a place to study and sleep – though you’ll hopefully plan on doing plenty of both. It is also comfortable, a place to relax and socialize. And the residence halls are well-equipped, with all the comforts of home and conveniently located right in the middle of things. Your new home is within a 10-minute walk from most classes, the library, counseling center, athletic facilities, and for course, other residence halls.
But ask almost any of the students who live on-campus and they’re likely to tell you their favorite feature is the opportunity to meet a diverse, friendly group of students and begin to form lifelong friendships. Really, it’s just a matter of time before your new “home away from home” becomes, simply, home.
