For a Healthy Living Environment
For first-year students, CHOICE housing represents a unique living experience by creating an environment for students who share a common commitment.
Students who live in CHOICE housing sign a commitment not to drink or smoke in their residence hall, or return home intoxicated. They make a pledge to be responsible and respectful of their peers in order to promote a healthy living and learning environment.
Of course everyone living on campus has to abide by certain regulations, but because students share a common commitment, CHOICE housing is a great option for some of the most common challenges when making the adjustment from living at home to living with others and sharing their space.
CHOICE housing represents a unique living experience by creating an environment for students who want to avoid these challenges.
The benefits are that:
Students share a common commitment
It provides a wide range of fun social activities and events.
It increases the likelihood of focusing on healthy living and positive social interactions.
Students who are thinking about living in CHOICE housing may worry that they won't have a social life. However, students are not asked to refrain from the social life of Lehigh. Instead, they make a pact with their fellow residents to keep their living area free from cigarettes and all other tobacco products, beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages and illegal drugs.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, CHOICE Housing will be located on several floors within Dravo House for first-year students.
