What students are saying:

"I use the fitness center at Independence a lot. I think it is really convenient to have a gym on Laird campus because it is close to my room. I also like having lounges on every floor and a main lounge on the ground floor."

-Kate Ciccarelli '15

"Everyone associated with the housing has been really great and made it a pleasant experience for my friends and I."

-Shane '15
