The students that are to attend which session will be determined by class standing and grade point average. Every full time student will be assigned a number starting with one and increasing until each full time student has a number Those numbers will be mailed to the students’ campus mailboxes after class registrations have ended. Students with the highest class standing and GPA will receive the lowest numbers. It’s also possible for someone with a lower class standing and GPA to find themselves in an earlier session. If an individual intends to room with someone who has a lower number than they do, they may attend the earlier session to choose a living space. If students have specific needs or want to live Housing lottery, April 10: • 30 to 45 minute sessions holding up to 100 students each • Every full time student assigned a number • Lottery number determined by class rank and GPA • Off-campus housing forms due April 1 off-campus there are forms in the campus life office that need to be filled out and turned in by April 1. Each student is required to bring their number and student id to the lottery in order to shorten the length of the process. Djuren said he would anticipate this process to continue, simply because it gives the students the power to choose if nothing else, the place they rests there heads—after learning how much they’ve spent for it.
