New for Fall '12
What's new this year?
A: A lot!
You may have noticed that your $200 prepayment from the 2011-2012 academic year has already been returned to your student account. As such, a new $200 prepayment will be charged to your student account as part of the Room Rodeo process.
Garcia & Cervantes Refurbishments
Both Garcia Hall and Cervantes Village will be receiving an updated look this summer!
Out with the white and turquoise metal furniture in Garcia….. In with the sleek, moveable, and modern furniture! Garcia is receiving new carpet, blinds, locks, dressers, loftable beds, multi-functional desks and storage spaces, and much more room! The extra space created by our new, functional furniture allows students more space within their rooms for personal items and activities.
Cervantes is also receiving new furniture including full-size beds and new drawer storage units for the bedroom and new living room furniture. Living room and bedrooms will be carpeted as well. (Note: new furnishings are for the 2- and 4-bdrm apartments only. The efficiency spaces have already been refurbished.)
Please see attached Garcia before and after pictures for the full effect!
Garcia Programmatic Changes
We have two new themed patios also coming to Garcia Hall:
Where is it? Located in A-Patio of Garcia Hall.
Who lives there? This community is open to students of all majors with an interest in leadership, social justice, and multiculturalism.
What do they do? Students increase their leadership potential through diverse activities such as community service, leadership training workshops, experiential trips, and mentoring relationships. “Impact” is aimed to help students succeed in an increasingly globalized society, with an emphasis on multiculturalism, social justice and service to their communities. “Impact” is a community open to all students who want to engage with others in a safe, inclusive living environment.
Where is it? Housed in D-Patio of Garcia Hall.
Who lives there? Students of all majors throughout their college experience who have an interest in health and wellness. “Balance” is not just for health and fitness enthusiasts; the focus is applicable for any student at NMSU.
What do they do? “Balance” is a place for students to learn about and practice a healthy approach to making their minds and bodies fit. This community is committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle and providing students with a living environment to foster this. Students living in “Balance” will have the opportunity to invest in interest areas such as substance free living, nutrition and fitness, outdoor recreation, and mental health. Students can participate in activities and events such as: healthy cooking/potlucks, camping/outdoor recreation, competing in intramural teams, and meditation workshops.
We are offering single occupancy spaces in Monagle Hall to cater to those students who want to live in the Residence Halls but do not want to share a room with a roommate. Singles will be provided to upperclassmen first and this option will be available during the Monagle Selection Day of the Room Rodeo process. (Rooms will still be furnished as double occupancy).
Living Learning Communities
We have a brand new Living Learning Community launching this Fall in Garcia Hall! Innovation Den, or iD, will focus on entrepreneurship and is open to all majors and all academic progress levels.
iD will encompass a wide range of activities focusing on those students interested in learning and developing their entrepreneurial mindset. Students in this LLC will be able to learn from local entrepreneurs, participate in Innovation Challenges, develop their own business plans and practice innovative thought.
