Mountain View rumors false, Tinsley to become freshman hall
The Office of Residence Life has confirmed the rumors floating around about Mountain View becoming a freshman hall next year are just that — rumors. However, the same is not true for Tinsley Hall, which will be converted into a first-year hall.
Mountain View is a coed residence hall located on the northeast side of NAU and houses members of the different sororities and fraternities on campus. According to Kristopher Lyons, president of the Residence Hall Association, Mountain View will stay exactly as it is now next year.
However, more room for incoming freshmen does need to be made. Lyons said Tinsley Hall would be added to the list of buildings students know as Freshman Connections Halls. Alicia Stewart, associate director of the Office of Residence Life, said Tinsley would be joining its neighbor, Cowden Hall, as a residence for first-year students.
“This current year, Tinsley is a mixed hall with both freshman and upper-division students, with no academic or GPA requirements,” Stewart said. “Next year, [2011-2012] Tinsley will be a Freshman Connections Hall.”
