Marygrove College recognizes the residential environment as a learning experience. The residence hall program not only offers food and housing, but also offers students educational and social opportunities that promote growth and self-fulfilment. Through combined efforts of the residence hall staff and various student organizations, we are able to develop a sense of community and promote student involvement. The success of the residence hall program depends directly upon student commitment to self and to the residence hall community.
