Dunbar and Prentice Halls together are staffed by a Residence Hall Director (RHD), a Graduate Assistant (GA), and ten Resident Assistants (RAs). The staff's main 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.
The Prentice 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 hall, as well as the whole campus.
During the 2020-2021 academic year, double rooms in Prentice Hall have been converted into deluxe single rooms (both sets of furniture will remain in the room).
