Student Housing

Welcome to Your Life!

Dr. Michael Dichio and Animas Hall are dedicated to the idea that substantive, informal engagement with faculty and distinguished visitors to campus can be mind opening, horizon broadening, and character deepening. The format is informal, and the topics are as varied and stimulating as the extraordinary lives and minds of those who come to chat with you about the things they care most about. Come join us and learn how to build a meaningful life.
