Home alone

Henry Humphreys, director, Office of Residential Life:

“During the winter break more than 1,000 students remain on campus. First, there are student athletes from the basketball, ice hockey, football, swimming, and skiing teams. In a few rare cases, a student stays in a residence hall because they have a personal situation, which makes them unable to go home. Some 600 students stay here for academic reasons, to student teach, for internships, or community service. For security reasons, they all live in the Lower Campus residence halls. During winter break, residential life trains resident assistants and professional staff. This year, we’re also planning for a housing conference that BC will host in June.”
