SODA Community | The Ridge

Walkway leading into a covered building entrance with a sign reading "Omega"

 

Welcome to the SODA Community, featuring Sigma, Omega, Delta and Alpha up on the Ridge.

A location atop the hill between north and south campus means that classes, the rec-center, the library, and just about everything else is a short walk downhill from the Ridge. SODA offers its residents a smaller more personal community within each building, but also a sense of a larger community shared between its four buildings, where residents can get involved in multiple activities and find other residents with common interests.

Below you will find information like front desk hours, community updates, floor plans, professional live-in staff, and more.
