Philosophy and Purpose
The philosophy of the Residence Life Office is to give residential students an opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that fosters and empowers academic, personal, emotional, spiritual, and community development. The two residence halls, Lozier Tower and Madonna Hall, are an excellent place to make new friends and form lasting relationships, participate in numerous activities, develop novel interests, and learn to live in a community rich in diversity. We encourage residential students to become active members of the CSM campus community.
Our purpose is to create and provide a student-centered, comfortable, supportive, and safe living environment where students can be allowed to continue to grow as respectful and responsible adults. Residents have the freedom to learn about themselves, while they enjoy all the comforts of home.
Students will exhibit an understanding of their roles and responsibilities within the residential and campus communities.
Students will leave College of Saint Mary with an understanding of themselves and the world, preparing them for their future within the global community.
Students will demonstrate an ability to think, trust, care, and advocate for themselves and others, while showing acceptance and respect for their peers.
Students will explore their personal beliefs as related to faith and apply their understanding of the CSM values to their interactions with others.
Students will show concern for others in their words and actions, engaging in their community and demonstrating respect and responsibility for all.
Students will be able to communicate effectively, manage interpersonal conflict, and establish mutually rewarding relationships.
The residence hall staff includes two full time staff members, the Director of Residence Life and the Assistant Director of Residence Life. We also rely on experienced student leaders to serve as student staff. One extraordinary student staff member serves as the campus Community Coordinator and there is a Resident Advisor (RA) on each floor. Programs are planned throughout the year to build community and explore various academic, multicultural and personal growth topics designed to complement your education.
