Housing & Residence Life


A variety of activities have been developed by students, faculty and staff to provide first-year students opportunities for great both social and intellectual experiences on and off campus. Explore these events with friends. Meet new people. Join faculty on trips both local and regional.

There's much to do, so explore!

The Triangle Region attracts Broadway performances, world class musicians, and other fantastic artistic displays.  The Arts to Go program was established to give first-year students the opportunity to enjoy these performances with their classmates for free or greatly reduced cost.

Devils After Dark
The Devils After Dark program was implemented in 2005 to provide safe and fun social opportunities for first-year students on the weekends.  Every Friday and Saturday night, you can expect to find something exciting going on! Events include buses to area malls, acapella concerts, dance lessons, and recreation activities.

As part of the Devils After Dark program, the House Councils from each first year residence hall choose one night each semester to sponsor and plan one Devils After Dark event.  One representative from each house sits on the Late Night Programming Committee which helps choose events and facilitate the planning process.

The events for the week are posted in each residence hall lobby and are also included in the weekly events email.  First year students can also opt to sign up for the Devils After Dark facebook group.
