I've lived on and off campus, and making friends in Merrill has been easier than anywhere else. You're part of a group, not just living in the same building.

What is Theme Housing?

Theme Housing is about creating communities with shared interests. Specific floors in our residence halls are linked to different "theme." Each theme is developed by a Peer Mentor, a student leader who lives in the community and plans a variety of activities throughout the year.

Theme Housing is divided into two programs: (Freshman Interest Groups) and (Lifestyles). Freshman Interest Groups (Or FIGs) are designed to help freshmen of any major transition to college. Our Lifestyles are open to students of any age who want to get involved with specific departments and programs on campus.
