On Monday, July 10, RAMSA Partner Kevin M. Smith
will present "First-Year Experience and Residence Halls: One Solution to Increasingly Competitive Admissions" at SCUP 52, the Society for College and University Planning's Annual Conference, held from July 8-12 in Washington, D.C. Presenting with him will be Chris Lucier, the University of Delaware's Vice President for Enrollment Management; Peter Krawchyk, the University's Director of Facilities Planning and Construction; and Jim Tweedy, the University's Senior Associate Director of Residence Life and Housing.
In anticipation of a more competitive environment for enrollment in the coming years, University of Delaware decided to relocate first-year student residences to a more central part of the campus to create a more stimulating first-year experience that would help students navigate college life. The presentation will discuss the planning, design, and construction of the South Academy Residence Hall while addressing the first-year college experience from an enrollment management and residential life perspective.
