Throughout the year students have many opportunities to engage within the residential community, including: movie nights, cooking nights, as well as beyond the residential community, through events created to positively impact the greater campus community. Some programs are designed for students within one of the particular programs in Thatcher, others bring all Thatcher students together for cross cultural opportunities. Thatcher residence hall has a variety of lounges and common spaces (including a full kitchen) where students gather to socialize in the language or around common interests.
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO BECOME PART OF THE COMMUNITY
