• Tharp Hall is located at the heart of campus on the Pedestrian Mall. Residents enjoy close proximity to classroom buildings, the Deacon Jones Dining Hall, and the Paul Conn Student Union. Four students occupy a two-bedroom suite with a shared bathroom. The bathrooms include a toilet and a combination bathtub-shower. Each bedroom has two extra-long twin beds, two desks with chairs, two to three closets, and a sink/vanity. Each floor of this three-story building has its own coin/card-operated laundry facility and a TV lounge area complete with furniture, a television, and a community kitchen. The community kitchens are equipped with a refrigerator, a microwave, and a stove/oven. A unique feature of Tharp Hall is that it is connected by a hallway to Nora Chambers and Simmons Hall.

    Resident Director

    "What I love about my job, is getting the opportunity to walk alongside students as they grow and to flourish into adulthood. The college years are especially formative, as students really critically assess where they are and where they want to go with their life. My favorite part about working with college students is getting to be a part of the transformative time that college proves to be in their lives. It is getting to be there with students as they experience the joys of new friendship, and it is being given the opportunity to sit with students in the hard moments of sadness, pain, and heartbreak as life throws its curveballs. My hope is that the ladies of Cross and Tharp will leave the year feeling as though they have grown autonomously and have embraced the community around them by living and learning together and most importantly, that they would see The Lord at work in their life as they learn who He is and how vast, and how wide His love is for them."

    This will be the 5th year that the lovely ladies of Cross and Tharp Halls will be proudly serving Project: Free2Fly, a local organization that seeks to support, nurture, and empower women. Project: Free2Fly teaches local women the trade of sewing and provides mentorship, care, and an avenue for earning an income. Our students will have the opportunity to volunteer through service days at their store front, working with their annual fundraiser, and other various avenues throughout the year.
