On-Campus Advantage

 DeHority Complex

With the privacy of a single room and access to computer labs, a fitness center, and instant wireless connections, living on campus was a “no brainer” for Residence Hall Association Vice President Joseph A. Box, ’12. The speech-language pathology and audiology major is one of 600 residents living in Thomas J. Kinghorn Hall, a $35.6 million structure that opened in fall 2010.

“Kinghorn is an exciting and diverse community that offers upperclassmen the ability to reap the educational benefits of living on campus while also providing students with a sense of independence rivaling any off-campus community,” Box says. “It’s modern and high-class. I appreciate the welcoming atmosphere.”

Kinghorn Hall is the third new or extensively renovated residence facility to open on campus during the past four years. Renovations to DeHority Complex were finished in 2009, and Park Hall was built in 2007. These facilities offer smoke-free, home-like environments that focus on academic achievement and social development.
