Oak Hall is everything college life is supposed to be about. Host to part of the FYRE program it provides a unique mix of academic support and social opportunities. The staff and residents of Oak make supporting your academic success a priority, it's home to the Academic Resource Center (ARC) where peer tutors are always around to help with course work, and regularly check in on how your classes are going. Also high on the priority list around these parts is involvement, with tons of planned activities every week. Oak is also looking pretty spiffy these days, there's a newly remodeled game room in the basement, and the all the flooring, kitchens and community areas have been updated.
Oak is great way to jump right in and get a full dose of the college experience. It's a very social environment, and residents have a lot of fun. There are people around all the time, in the game room, at the front desk, the lobbies, the lounges, you can always find a study partner, or someone to hang out with.

I'm always on the move (you've got to be if you're going to stop a river!). That's why I love Oak, it's the most active hall on campus. No one gets bored living in Oak. It's busy, busy, busy. It's as busy as a . . . Me!
