Farnham Programming Space
The Office of Residence Life is pleased to offer the newly renovated Farnham Programming Space (FPS).The FPS offers a variety of educational, entertaining, and interactive events for all residential and commuter students. From our Residence Hall Association body meetings to the Counseling Services Programming Series to our Coffee House/Open Mic Night, there are a vast amount of events happening on any day of the week throughout the semester.
When there is not an event going on, the FPS offers quiet study hours for residential students, a place to go to get out of your room and meet new people, a place to relax, or even to simply watch TV or Reslife Cinema. Events that have occurred in the space have included; Counseling Services Pet-Therapy Stress Relief, Sustainable Sushi event, Programs Council Thursday Night Owls entertainment, and Reslife Cinema movie nights, just to name a few.
