Resident Advisors

Substance-Free Housing

The residential life program is also committed to providing substance-free housing for students who are committed to living in an environment free from alcohol or other drugs. COA will offer at least one substance-free house on campus and we will do our utmost to accommodate as many students as request substance-free housing.
