Residential Colleges Make Life Easier at Miami

— In today’s issue of the Miami Hurricane, the student newspaper of the University of Miami, Stacey Arnold writes that “Residential colleges make life easier”:

The residential structure at the University is patterned after Oxford University. Resident Masters—University faculty—have an apartment in the first floor of each of the residential colleges. Masters open their home to students to watch television, cook dinner and study—including Thanksgiving dinner for students that stay on campus.

“You will participate in a diverse community made up of fellow students, faculty and staff,” said Eric Arneson, associate director of the Department of Residence Halls. “You will treasure those relationships for life.”
