Hello, fellow residents of Hinely Hall!
I am so excited to welcome you to Florida College. It should be one of the most challenging and rewarding times of your life. I was a student at Florida College a few years ago (okay, quite a few years ago!), and I still remember my time in the dorm as one of the best memories I have of my college years.
As in most any home, the family is made up of more than just yourself. Hinely Hall will house approximately 150 girls in close proximity with the girls of Jennifer and College Halls. We are all one family working together to have the best environment possible for learning, living and fun. Improvements to Hinely Hall have been made to make your home as comfortable as possible.
We will be ready and waiting to check you in on Move In Day. We will be offering refrigerator rentals for those who are unable to bring their own. There are three sizes, available to rent for $50, $60 or $70 a year. Since we have limited quantities, you may contact me at my email address and reserve one ahead of time if you would like.
Please take a moment to review the Florida College handbook and the rules that govern all of us. It will be one of my responsibilities to enforce those rules, and it will be your responsibility to understand them and comply. We are all striving to be godly women and a section that I would strongly advise you to become familiar with is the dress code. Make your clothing choices wisely and please bring appropriate attire for all occasions. You will need appropriate attire for the hot, humid August weather, but January and February can be quite cold, so you will need clothing that covers a wide range of temperatures. A reliable umbrella is also a necessity for those numerous afternoon showers.
Be sure to check the What to Bring link to see some of the items we provide for use and others that I have found you will need. Please feel free to contact me by email or by leaving a message with the college if you should have any further questions.
All of us here at the college try to work together to provide the best educational experience that you can have anywhere. Make sure that you are checking your email account with the school for updates, and look at the website to familiarize yourself with the school.
Enjoy your summer and get ready for an exciting fall. I can’t wait to meet you and get to know you personally. I want you to feel free to talk with me about your concerns, your successes, your hopes and dreams. My door is open to you.
See you soon,
