Foss Feels Like Family
Students from a wide variety of majors and backgrounds find their homes Foss. Foss Hall will be closing a the end of the 2014-15 Academic Year. Foss is also currently home to the First in the Family Community, which will be housed in upper campus in Ordal Hall beginning in Fall of 2015.
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 root beer and to talk about life in the hall and around campus.
