Students from a wide variety of majors and backgrounds find their homes Foss.  The friendly and open atmosphere of Foss Hall is well known around campus. Foss is also home to the new First in the Family Community

Foss Hall is located on lower campus and is close to a variety of things. Here are just a few: parking facilities (including first year and gated lots), The Tahoma Bakery, the gym, Rieke Science Center, Mary Baker Russell Music Center, Foss Field, basketball courts, sand volleyball pit, tennis courts and the swimming pool.

Hall Programs are hosted by every hall on campus, though each hall puts their own unique twist on the programming that happens in that hall.  Foss has a few that pull in students from all over campus and people can't wait every year to attend.  Some of these Foss programs include Field Games (day of fun, carnival-style games), Game Nights, End of the Semester Celebration, and the Frosted Mug Lovers, a social program sponsored by Foss and Pflueger staff members bringing together residents from both buildings experience various types of rootbeer and to talk about life in the hall and around campus.
