Evans-Kimmell Hall features apartment-style accommodations for honors living-learning community students. Honors students will discuss with faculty, local leaders, and other students how the interconnection of the sciences, humanities and technology are at work. This will occur as part of dialogue, connecting discussion with course content, and exploring a variety of topics such as ethics in the global arena to recognizing the importance of diversity and inclusion. To be considered, students must be admitted into the Honors program and completion of a supplemental questionnaire upon expression of interest. Unfilled beds by the honors living-learning community may be assigned to other students as requested or needed.
The facility accommodates 58 students in 15 apartments (four students per apartment) and is staffed by two resident assistants.
