Residential Life



The Office of Residential Life supports the academic mission of Dalton State College by offering opportunities that foster individual development and collective growth throughout our residential community. We promote mutual respect, leadership, and shared values as a residential community of learners.


Our aim is to establish fundamental requisites of a residential campus at Dalton State College, while striving to provide opportunities for student engagement, academic success, and skills that will enhance a lifetime of learning.
