White Hall, named after the professor who created the Homecoming Lantern Tradition, is home to 220 students in one of three First Year Experience coed residence halls at UWL.
Most residents have one or two roommates with whom they share a bedroom. Wing residence halls have long running hallways with student rooms on either side. The term traditional means that residents in this building live in standard double rooms with a shared bathroom facility. As an FYE hall White Hall only houses first year students and is single sexed by floor.
As a First Year Experience hall, Orris White Hall not only has an enthusiastic staff of Resident Assistants and a Desk Coordinator to support residents, but also a Learning Enrichment Coordinator and Academic Advisor housed directly in the building to support Orris White Hall residents in their academic and social transitions to college; for the LEC and Academic Advisor, this occurs through regular office hours and supplemental programming for residents to utilize. These services are funded by a minimal additional charge to residents of the First Year Experience buildings
An added benefit of living in a First Year Experience building is that the start of the year holds many opportunities to get involved – all of the hiring for the Front Desk Assistants and Assistant Housekeepers, as well as recruitment for leadership involvement, starts within the first few weeks of residents’ arrival. Live with residents who are experiencing UWL the same way you are – and have fun making memories together!
