What our residents are saying

I liked living on campus because HFS offers so many programs to get you involved, like movie nights or crafting. It is way less stressful living on campus.

I really like the private bathrooms, the chalkboards, and the new buildings. I’m living on campus next year because it’s really convenient.

Eric, Freshman
