Residence hall applications now being accepted at NSU

Campus residents enjoy convenience, amenities and living learning communities

(Tahlequah, Okla.)-- Applications are now being accepted for Northeastern State University residence halls for the fall 2016 semester. On-campus living options include North Leoser Complex, South Leoser Complex, Wyly Hall, Haskell Hall Annex, Courtside Apartment Complex, Seminary Suites and Isabel Cobb Hall.

Isabel Cobb Hall, the most recent addition, will open in fall of 2016 with 344 beds in a co-ed by suite building with semi-private rooms and shared bath between four residents. This residence hall features lounge space on each floor and a multipurpose room on the first floor.

NSU’s Wyly Hall is also undergoing extensive renovation and will be available to students this fall.

On-campus living comes with a variety of benefits, including convenient proximity to classes and university facilities, free extracurricular in-hall programming, networking opportunities, leadership training, free laundry facilities, access to multiple computer labs, membership to the RiverHawks Wellness Center, as well as free cable, water, sewer, trash, Internet and electricity.

Whitney Arbaugh, assistant director for Residence Life, said students who live on-campus achieve higher grade point averages than their off-campus peers, report a higher degree of satisfaction with the college experience, and have higher graduation rates.

Each residential facility has its unique characteristics and features, and these are included in the living learning communities. A living learning community is a residential cluster of students sharing academic or social/cultural interests.

“These communities provide a smaller college setting with access to greater university resources where students can explore an interest that may not be associated with the specific academic focus. Living learning communities facilitate personal relationships between students and university staff and build welcoming atmospheres to increase learning and retention,” Arbaugh said.

Current living learning communities include the First Year Experience, Cherokee Promise Scholars, Interfraternity and Panhellenic Councils, RiverHawks communities, Transfer Students, Finish in 4, Green Initiative, and more.
