Gamma is part of the larger Beta-Gamma community and is a non-traditional style hall, housing residents in four-room suites consisting of double rooms and a shared bathroom. Each room has its own exterior door. The stacks of Ridgeway Gamma weave their way through the trees and hillsides on which they are built. Located between north and south campus, the Ridge is closest to the Rec Center and just uphill from the library, Red Square and most everything else on campus.
Gamma Stack 3 has two lounges, one with a kitchenette, and one with a big screen TV and piano. Beta residents also have access to the lounges located in Beta Stack 8. Laundry facilities are one floor down from each respective lounge, and a sauna in Beta is also open to residents of the Beta-Gamma community. A small indoor bike storage area and outdoor bike storage is available.
Beta-Gamma residents are encouraged to become active members of their residence hall, Beta-Gamma community, as well as the larger campus community. The staff works to provide opportunities for service learning, leadership development, and continued learning opportunities on issues of interest to an upper-class population (ex. scholarships, resume writing, internships, Peace Corp, women's issues, politics, and faculty interaction to name a few).
ALCOHOL-FREE: Stacks 7 and 8 of Gamma are designated as alcohol-free, for students who make a commitment to refrain from using or supporting the use of alcohol while in residence. This type of environment gives students an opportunity to live with others who have made a similar commitment.
