On behalf of the entire Residential Life Team, I would like to welcome you to University Housing at San Francisco State University! We are glad that you have decided to live in our community for the coming year and we are confident that this will be a memorable experience for you. The Residential Life Team is committed to supporting you during this exciting time in your new home away from home!

Living on the campus will provide you with many chances to learn new things, and Residential Life is committed to providing a full range of opportunities for you to get involved. You will see a whole series of social and educational opportunities in the community throughout the year. I encourage you to attend events and activities as these are great chances to broaden your perspectives as well as to connect with other students in the community. You will also find a number of leadership opportunities in the community and you are encouraged to join or lead those that meet your interests and your passions. And if there is something that you would like to see happen in the community that you feel is not happening now, please let the staff know so that we can try and meet that need. You are an important part of this community and we want to know what opportunities will make the experience beneficial, memorable and fun for you!

Part of learning involves facing challenges and opportunities. So many things may seem new to you as you go thru the year and may be very different from what you have experienced thus far in your life. I encourage you to face these new challenges and opportunities with an open mind and willingness to learn. Please know that you are not alone as you go thru this exciting time. Your Area Coordinator and your Resident Assistant are two of the first resources to help you and answer your questions. But please know that the entire Residential Life Staff are here and committed to supporting and helping you to succeed. Please ask for what you need and let us know how we are doing and how we can continue to support your personal and your academic growth at San Francisco State.

I want to thank you for choosing to live in the community for the year. We are glad to have you here in the community!
