Crawford House

"Crawford House is the perfect combination of peace, care, and creative pursuits (also known as play). Throughout your first year of college, so many 'new' experiences exist - new friends, new classes, a new city, and sometimes even a new you.  Amid all that change, Crawford creates a forever home where we consistently support each every step of the way: socially, emotionally, intellectually, creatively, the list goes on."
- Danielle McKeiver, Crawford House Head Resident
