What Is FOCUS?

FOCUS, First-Year Opportunities and Connections for UNA Students, is a first-year residential community which provides a network of resources for students to create friendships, learn the traditions and customs of UNA, and successfully transition into their college experience. Participants are able to engage with their peers and develop the skills necessary to be an academically successful student and contributing member of the UNA community.  

What Transitions Might First-Year Students Experience? 

  • New Home
  • New Friends
  • New Routines
  • New Decisions
  • New Adventures
  • New Academic Challenges
  • New Level Of Independence

Where Is FOCUS?

FOCUS is housed in Rivers Hall, our most recently renovated residence hall. Residents are placed in this building so they can most easily access program resources, including the Success Center. Space in Rivers Hall is limited and rooms are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to live and participate in this community, we recommend completing your Residence Hall Application and Contract as soon as possible. 

Please contact Jennifer A. Sutton for additional information.
