The PRIMARY role of the Hall Host - and their residence hall room, is to provide an opportunity for prospective students and their families to actually view a typical first year living space, and the opportunity to meet and talk with a current residential student. In addition, these students will also participate in various recruitment programs coordinated by the Admissions office. Now that you know all that . . .
