"What I love most about living at Medley Hall is the ample opportunities to get involved in the community. From small things like seeing friends at dinner each night, attending events, baking together and working on the garden to bigger volunteer positions, like being part of the Student Club. I have truly loved getting involved in college life and being part of Medley’s small, inclusive, supportive community."
