Themed Communities

The Office of Residential Life and Education is excited to offer another year of themed community living.  To foster the broadest range of successful living options possible, and in order to assure that residential groups contribute significantly to students’ individual development and the Doane University community, the Office of Residential Life and Education provides the following guidelines for reference as interested groups of students complete the application process.  We appreciate your interest in making our campus community richer and more diverse in options and experiences.
