Winona State University will present “Residence Life: The Benefits and Opportunities of On-Campus Living and Why Students Don’t Live in Dorms” at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 24, on the second floor of the Darrell W. Krueger Library.

Students Tyler Treptow and Dan Badalamente will discuss how WSU’s on-campus living facilities and their professional and student employees are dedicated to improving the lives of student residents. Treptow serves as regional communications coordinator of recruitment and retention for the Midwest Affiliate of College and University Residence Halls, and Badalamente is executive president of the WSU residence housing association.

All WSU Athenaeum Series events are free and open to the public.

The Athenaeum hosts events that explore and enhance the intellectual life of the University and the region through lectures, readings, performances, discussions and other events. By bringing together scholars, performers, students and community members for intellectual discussion and the sharing of cultural experiences, the Athenaeum reflects the importance the University places on the humanities, the arts and the sciences.
