Programs. Activities. Your Social Life.
From the day you move in, you'll find a variety of educational and social programs that help ease your transition to USI. Living on campus provides the best environment for expanding your understanding of people and for making new friends.
Campus living also provides great ways to easily get involved in USI campus life by joining clubs and organizations, participating in intramurals, attending athletic events, taking on leadership roles, exploring academic programs and simply kicking back and hanging out with friends.
HRL hosts a variety of events and programs throughout the year for residents. During the fall and spring semesters, we have Eagles Night Out events on Friday or Saturday. These are housing-wide events designed to provide students a social outlet and a way to connect with other residents. ENO events have included casino night, a petting zoo, a haunted house, backyard bbq, craft night, trivia night, escape rooms and more. In addition to ENOs, there is the annual Block Party in August welcoming students to campus, Free Breakfast Fridays, Eagles on Ice (ice skating at Swonder Ice Arena), Resident Appreciation Week and Late Night Breakfast (breakfast before finals). Resident assistants also create programming to engage with their residents and build community. Many events include free food!
Residents can also take advantage of the basketball court and sand volleyball at the Community Center. Students who enjoy relaxing in nature will find several hammock areas located throughout the apartment areas and near the residence halls. The Recreation, Fitness, and Wellness Center is within walking distance of apartments and residence halls.
