For the first time, St. Thomas Residence Life has opened next year’s on-campus housing applications in November, four months earlier than normal. Students must still wait until spring to select their rooms, but more than 200 students have already applied to return. Residence Life Director Aaron Macke said there was a 5 percent drop in the number of students who returned to on-campus housing this year.
Along with Macke, University Affairs Editor Anastasia Straley explores why Residence Life is pursuing students so early and how it hopes this strategy will work.
