Finish Strong Community

Finish Strong is a living community for residential students who are 21 or older. The community is designed to promote a lifestyle more in line with the needs of our older junior/senior/grad population; what you might experience if you lived in an off-campus accommodation with all the benefits of on-campus living. Benefits include the ability to consume alcohol in residence. Residents of the Finish Strong community will also engage in living and learning programs that are targeted toward students preparing to enter the post-college work force. 

Global Crossroads Community

Are you a student interested in learning more about other cultures? Does living with international students and helping them as they acclimate into our campus environment sound like fun? You might be interested in signing up for our Global Crossroads Theme Community. Global Crossroads pairs 2 American students with 2 international students to live in a Compass Point 4-bedroom apartment. Besides special programs and opportunities to learn more about diverse cultures, you'll have the satisfaction of assisting a new international student in his/her transition into our American college environment.

Greek Life Community

Are you a member of a campus Greek organization? We're setting aside some residential units for a Greek-themed community in the 3000 buildings of Compass Point. Display your letters with pride on the outside of the 3000 buildings of Compass Point. Participate in community programming specific to the needs of our fraternities and sororities. Show Armstrong and our residential community why Greek life is so amazing!

Transfer Strong

Are you an incoming transfer student interested in getting to know other transfer students? Housing and Residence Life clusters transfer students together in Compass Point 4-bedroom apartments. It's a great way to meet other transfer students who will be going through some of the same things you will go through. Transfer Strong will have special programs and give you opportunities to meet more students like yourself who are starting their Armstrong experience. 

Direct any questions you have about the communities listed below to Assistant Director of Housing Operations, Andrew Gresenz (, 912.344.2940).
