Located at University Village, the Agricultural Theme House consists of 23 first-time agriculture students and one agriculture resident advisor. These students share a common interest in agriculture and study, work, play, and live together. Students participate in a variety of educational, leadership, and social programs including BBQs, speakers, advising sessions, field trips, and more. The students become integrated into the College of Agriculture very quickly because they get a great deal of interaction with faculty, staff, and current students.
University Village is considered an independent style of living. Students cook for themselves but do have the option of purchasing campus meal plans beyond the minimum meal plan included. The cost of living at UV is less than the traditional residence halls because it includes only a Mini meal plan. Traditional residence halls include different meal plans per semester in their price. Students live in a six-person cluster at University Village in single or double rooms. Every two rooms share a bathroom, and every four rooms share a kitchen and dining area. The UV grounds offers two pools, a spa, tennis courts, laundry facilities, and recreation room.
So what do current students think about the program?
- The motto for the Theme House should be "instant friends" because that is exactly what it is. Friends all around you as soon as you move in.
- This has been such a great way to begin my college experience!
- What a great way to meet people!
