The A.M. Hills Residential Complex is divided into 2 separate halls, Garey Hall & Jernigan Hall. One hall houses male students while the other houses female students. There are a total of 288 student beds for students. In addition, the building also is home to the Bud Robinson Room, located at the center of the 1st floor which holds 300+ people and is equipped with a projector and 3 TV’s which can be synced to the main projector or used independently.
Hills features exciting programming, custom planned for each year’s residents. Some examples of popular events include a Thanksgiving feast, a Christmas party, ice cream floats, and individual events for each hallway in the building.
Hills fosters a cohesive atmosphere celebrating a meld of residents of all ages with different majors who are involved in various activities. Residents can often be found in the common areas of their suite rooms or in the common lobbies located on each floor. These spaces are places where close friendships are formed and life-long bonds are created.
Like all residence halls, Hills has a wonderful Residence Life staff. The staff includes twelve young men and women who are selected as Resident Advisors. The RA’s do a great job providing comfortable living conditions, building relationships among residents and providing spiritual guidance.
