Residence Life

AMC has an active residence life program that fosters and supports a student's personal, social, spiritual, and academic development. Over 600 AMC students live in the five residence halls: Madonna Hall, Alumni Hall, Coghlin Hall, South Hall, and St. Anne Hall, a new suite-style facility.
 
The Residence Life Office is committed to a philosophy of education that rests on a Roman Catholic value system fostering not only the intellectual but also the personal growth of each student. To fulfill its commitment to this philosophy, Residence Life attempts to create a residence hall environment that encourages personal responsibility, respect, religious and moral sensitivity, social awareness and freedom of thought. Residential living provides the opportunity for each student to live and participate in a community committed to the Mission of the College and the ideals of the Sisters of Saint Anne.

All RHC meetings are open to all resident students. Any questions contact the RHC Advisor, FYREC/Area Coordinator.
