Dining Close to Johnson Hall:


Johnson and Stopher Halls together are staffed by a Residence Hall Director (RHD) and twelve Resident Assistants (RAs). The staff's primary goals are to provide the residents with valuable information, create a positive community through educational programming, maintain a safe and high-quality living environment and serve as a resource whenever a student has a question or concern.

Hall Council

The Stopher-Johnson Hall Council also operates with the goal of improving student living. Hall Council provides all residents with an opportunity to interact with one another through weekly meetings and a variety of fun activities and programs. The Executive Board provides leadership opportunities within the Stopher-Johnson complex, as well as the whole campus.
