 What Students Have Said:

"I really love being able to see people all the time in the atrium. Whether I'm walking in the building from a class or stepping outside my dorm, there are always students hanging out in the Atrium. The Q Atrium is like a really big living room that houses fun events like game nights, movie nights, ice cream social, Halloween, and more events. You don't see that in other housing residences! There's no other place that allows students to hang out in one big area. With all the events going on and my classmates always hanging out, I always have someone different to hang out with."

-Gracie Reddick

"My favorite part about the LLC was knowing everyone and your best friend being just a couple doors away. You didn't even have to put on shoes to hang out! You could stay in your pajamas if you wanted to. Perfect for those board games and movie nights."

"One of my favorite things about living in Q is all the places that we can hang out - the kitchens, the study rooms, and at the couches on all three floors. I really love the two study rooms the most though. They are equipped with white boards, which are very, very helpful when working out physics, chemistry, and math problems. The rooms really allow my friends and I to come together and study and work out class problems in the room. They're especially helpful because I do not have to trek all the way to the library to try to find an open spot to study during finals week."

- Austin Laurin

"Living in Crossings Q lets me become totally immersed in the Hicks Honors College. Honors allows us to grow close through Colloquium and spend our free time together in Crossings Q. I love the community we have here. It is very tight knit and a wonderful learning environment. We all really support each other and it is great because everyone is going through the same thing together. Freshman year is not so scary when your friends and classmates are beside you. I can already say that I have made friends for life here at Honors.
