Dear Students, Parents, and Families On behalf of all of us in Residence Life and Housing, welcome to Colorado School of Mines! I want to thank you for taking the time to explore Residence Life and the opportunity to serve you! We encourage you to learn more about the opportunities and benefits that are in store for you when you decide to live on-campus in one of our engaging communities. Why should you live on-campus? Studies have shown that students who live on-campus at Colorado School of Mines are more likely to have a higher persistence and grade point average, take less time to earn their degree, and overall are more satisfied with their college experience. Residence Hall communities are safe, convenient, and engaging with social and educational opportunities. Our current and past residents will testify that living on-campus made adjusting to the Oredigger experience easier and set them up for success. Residents make lifelong friends, and have easy access to campus without the hassles of commuting. From academic to educational programs to social justice to Theme Learning Communities and recreational events, we encourage you to participate and take advantage of the opportunities within all of our living and learning environments. Please continue to explore our information within this booklet and on our website to see what we have to offer. We also encourage you to stop by or call us to meet some of our team at anytime. We are excited to have you join our community and make it your home away from home! On behalf of Residence Life and Housing, we look forward to serving you and providing you with the resources to be successful as an Oredigger! Sincerely,

Brent Waller Director of Residence Life and Housing

Traditional Halls

Elm Hall

Weaver Towers

THE RESIDENCE HALLS TRADITIONAL RESIDENCE HALLS Traditional Halls (Morgan, Thomas, Bradford, and Randall) house approximately 380 students total. Although there are a few exceptions in the ground levels of Bradford and Randall, the typical layout of a double room is approximately 12x16. Bunking the beds, along with creatively rearranging the room furniture, can open up more space. Each floor has a common restroom and shower facility, and the hallways are air-conditioned. All outside doors and the corridors to each floor are locked 24 hours a day and are accessible by residents via their Blastercard student ID. Each room is keyed separately for additional privacy. Students who reside in the Traditional Halls have access to common study space in VanDewerker Lounge (between Morgan and Thomas Halls), as well as various spaces in Bradford and Randall. There is a centrally located front desk for checking mail, getting questions and concerns addressed, and borrowing supplies or games.

WEAVER TOWERS has living space for 230 students in suites with limited single and double rooms, a common living area, and two single restroom/ shower facilities per suite. Weaver Towers features seven or eight person suites. Bedrooms vary widely but generally tend to be smaller than the Traditional Halls rooms. Usually lofted or bunked beds are the best option due to space constraints. Blastercard access opens main exterior doors. The suite door can be locked to prevent outside entry, and for additional privacy, the individual bedrooms are keyed separately. Weaver Towers has a music room, fireplace, kitchen, grill, picnic tables, front desk service and social/ study lounges. Each tower has a laundry room. MAPLE HALL a 291 bed semi-suite facility, with single, and double (triple rooms over-flow only) bedroom and one bathroom per suite. 2 Courtyard areas, 5 Social Lounges, 9 Study Rooms, Bike and Ski Storage/Work

room, Music Room, Conference rooms, Large Community Kitchen/Program Center, Elevator, Security Cameras, Common Area Computers, Piano in Living Room/ Lobby, Recreation room, courtesy phone on each floor, vending machines, loft-able beds, ADA Suites, LEED Silver (Sustainable Building). Located 2 blocks from central campus. ASPEN HALL is located two blocks from central campus. Renovated in 2012, Aspen Hall houses 23 upperclass students with single, double and triple rooms. Aspen offers one community bathroom per floor, two study lounges, community living room, kitchen facility, recreation room, laundry facility, courtesy phones

Maple Hall

on each floor, mail room, and front desk customer service. Basketball court and barbeque area were added for fun and relaxation. ELM HALL is our newest residence hall that will open in fall 2014, with a neighborhood style living that houses 207 students in a combination of single and double bedrooms and community bathrooms that offer private options on each floor. Located two blocks from central campus, Elm offers four social lounges, three study rooms, three study nooks, courtesy phones on each floor, work shop, community kitchen and laundry rooms on each floor, central living room, and rent-able indoor bike and storage units.

THEME LEARNING COMMUNITIES http://inside.mines.edu/ RSL-Theme-Housing

VISION Theme Learning Communities consist of intentionally designed living experiences centered around a variety of educational, cultural, organizational, and personal interests. These communities allow students with common interests and pursuits to live together and support each other through planned activities and informal interactions. GOALS • To provide an educational experience, rather than academic • To create well-rounded students • To further connect students to campus and the local community Each community will be comprised of about 30 students living together and an RA. The community will work with the Hall Director and Residence Life Coordinator of the building. Additionally, each community will partner with at least one Faculty Friend, various campus organizations and offices, and local businesses and nonprofits to ensure a wellrounded experience with many opportunities for

4

students to get involved and experience what Mines and Colorado have to offer. Each community will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of programming efforts on-campus and in the local community (Golden and Denver). ADVENTURE LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY HOUSED IN MAPLE HALL Students involved with the Adventure Leadership Community will receive the opportunity to participate in humanpowered recreational activities in Golden, Colorado, and the surrounding states. This community will partner with the Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC). Potential Activities: Hiking; Backpacking; River Rafting; Camping; Spelunking/Caving; Rock Climbing/Bouldering; Challenge Courses; Skiing/Snowboarding; Snow Shoeing; Local Races; Outdoor Trail Running; Biking Trips; International Learning Adventures

“This whole experience gave us a social advantage that other first year students did not have. We had the chance to make friends before classes start.” – Justin Fantasky Littleton, CO

ATHLETICISM AND WELLNESS HOUSED IN THE TRADITIONAL HALLS Students involved in the Athleticism and Wellness Theme Learning Community will engage in a variety of activities and immersive programs that engage in physical activity, team sports, and wellness. Partnering with club and intramural sports, the BE WELL committee, local professional athletic teams, and the Department of Athletics, students in this community will have a variety of opportunities to remain physically and mentally fit while learning more about balance and holistic wellness while at Mines. The community is looking for students of all genders, ability levels,

and interest levels to the various teams and sports on campus. Potential Activities: attending athletic events at Mines, supporting student athletics, joining intramural or club teams, guest speakers on wellness and balance, exploring what athletics look like in different cultures, and learning about healthy behaviors and balance. OREDIGGER’S LEADERSHIP COMMUNITY HOUSED IN ELM HALL Students involved with the Oredigger Leadership Community will have the opportunity to participate in professional and personal development opportunities that will focus on enhancing their leadership skills to become well-rounded engineers. Service, knowledge, well-being, communication and mentorship are the five pillars of leadership for the community. This experience is open to all first-year students from a variety of backgrounds and gender identities. Many activities will be planned for the entire community, and there will also be various personal and professional development opportunities geared towards supporting both men’s and women’s experiences.


Possible activities include: Community Service Events, Discussions on Servant Leadership, SelfConcept, Wellness, Self-Advocacy, Gender Communication, and Media Influence; Workshops on Time Management, Financial Planning, Business Etiquette, and Public Speaking; Mentor and Mentee Relationships “The support system is huge. We’re not in this alone. It can be overwhelming when you get here. We’re pretty normal.” – Deanna Mitchell Littleton, CO VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS HOUSED IN WEAVER TOWERS Students involved with the Visual and Performing Arts Community will engage the right side of their brain through a variety of art based programs. They will partner with the Creative Arts Club, the yearly High Grade art publication, and the Anonymous Right Brains Club, including attending local performances or workshops, and performing or creating for their own communities. This engagement will not only broaden students’ horizons regarding

the arts, but will also enhance the Mines community by providing additional opportunities for all Mines students to become engaged in the arts as well. This community welcomes artists of all art forms or patrons of the arts. Potential Activities: Performances at Denver Center for Performing Arts; On-campus performers or speakers; Student Art & Musical Showcases; Miner’s Alley Play-house; Art, Creative Writing, & Poetry Workshops “Bonding over a shared interest of music and art, theme living helped create a close-knit group of friends that I can always rely on.” - Krista Horn Houston, TX

UPPERCLASS/ TRANSFER STUDENTS The Returning Student Theme Learning Community was designed to support the unique needs of

upperclass students at Mines. Students will live on a floor with other returning students in an environment conducive for continued success at Mines. Living in after your first year gives you continued access to resources, a strong community, a supportive study environment and study groups, and is in a convenient location to classes. A Resident Assistant will take on the role of mentor and advisor helping to guide residents through their second year and beyond. Workshops will be available for students to attend with a special focus on academic success, internship and career support, campus resources, well-being and stress management. Faculty will be invited to attend dinners and share their unique story and tips for success at Mines. As a community, the residents will decide what activities and events they want to participate in and attend. Shape your Mines experience, live on campus beyond the first year. Applications for upperclass students only will transpire in February.

“Living in the Leadership Community was the best choice I could have made for my freshman year. The residence staff is an amazing support group, especially to those of us far away from home. I love living in the Traditional halls; doors are always open on the floor, and there is always someone to study with or just hang out with. I’ve met some amazing people, and I’ve made some amazing friends in the residence halls, and I can safely say that living on campus is definitely a highlight of my freshman year. “ – HAILEY MEYER FOLEY, MN

“I lived in the Residence Halls my first year at Mines and had my best experiences that I can remember. I became a Resident Assistant, RA, for two years. I was able to meet new people and help them through the transition that I went through as freshmen. I work as a Desk Assistant for the Residence Halls in which I assist RAs and residents at the desk. Even though it is my last year at Mines, I still wanted to be a part of the Residence Hall’s and what they have to offer. Truly the experiences that I gained from living in the Residence Halls has helped me tremendously to be where I’m at today.” – NABEEL BABBITT CASTLE ROCK, CO

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Q. Why should I purchase a meal plan? A. It’s a great value, and it is Colorado School of Mines’ policy that all residence hall students purchase a meal plan each semester. Q. What is Munch Money? A. Munch Money is included in all meal plans, and works like a prepaid debit card with funds kept on your Blastercard. Munch Money may be used at any on-campus dining location. Munch Money is not carried over from semester to semester. Q. How can I use a meal plan? A. You may use your meal plan in the following three ways: 1. Use a meal swipe for an all-you-care-to-eat meal in the Slate Café or Mines Market (coming in 2014-15). 2. Use a meal swipe for a “meal exchange” in any dining location on campus (up to 10 per week, or 115 per semester, depending on your plan). 3. Use your Munch Money to pay a la carte for purchases in Campus Dining retail locations or for a guest meal in the Slate Café or Mines Market. Q. Do meals carry over from week to week, or semester to semester? A. Weekly meal plans do not carry over from week to week, and semester block plans (Granite and Topaz) do not carry over from semester to semester. Q. Can I treat a friend or colleague to a meal on my plan? A. It depends. Meals in the Slate Café or Mines Market are for your use only. However, you can treat a friend in any location using your Munch Money, including purchasing a guest meal in the Slate Café or Mines Market. 11

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT HOUSING The International Student & Scholar Services Office (IS&SS) serves approximately 550 international students from 72 countries who attend Mines. Mines and Residence Life work hard to place international students in a comfortable, convenient and safe environment. When making a transition to college living, the residence halls are an excellent way to experience American culture as well as other cultures from around the world. Who must live on campus?

All full-time, first-year, degree-seeking students are required to live in the residence halls. With the stress that often comes with transitions to college life, the proximity to campus facilities and

14

resources are especially important. What residence halls are available for international students? International

students may live in any of the residence halls on campus. We want to make sure that international students adjust comfortably to their new environment. All campus residence halls include laundry facilities, wired and wireless internet connections, and cable TV services. These halls include rooms that are equipped with a bed, desk, desk chair, wastebasket, recycling bin, and a closet or dresser for each student. If you have questions about international student admissions, degree programs, billing, financial aid, or housing, please visit those specific webpages. Please send other questions

and comments about international student life at Mines to bsamter@mines. edu. The IS&SS business hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (MST), Monday through Friday.

Campus is closed during winter break. It is mandatory that all students leave campus during this time. *International Students living in Maple Hall will have the opportunity to stay on campus during winter break for an additional fee if they do not wish to leave campus or return home. Our Residence Life staff located in Maple Hall will be available to assist you. If you are not planning to leave campus for winter break, we recommend that you select Maple Hall.

“The best part of living in the residence halls is being a part of a huge community. You get to meet all kinds of people by just hanging out in the hallway or cafeteria. You will form relationships that will carry you through your college career.� – JENNY LEE CHINA
