Starting in the late 1990s, the administration and the trustees have worked together
to improve life on the campus. Nearly all students now live in college-owned dorms, including several dorms that were formerly
fraternity houses. A few fraternities and
sororities have had their charters revoked for extreme behavior (causing a great deal of controversy among the students).The changes have allowed the student community to increase the number and types of activities avialable on campus. The college
has also provided significant funding for student actvivies through student-run organizations. College-sponsored student-run
groups frequently bring music, movies, plays, and other proformers to the college.Like most small colleges in the United States, ethnic diversity is an ongoing struggle for the college.
