At Thomas College, you can request to live on a residence hall floor organized around a theme, known as "Theme Housing". Theme Housing gives you a chance to connect with and learn alongside people who share your same interests. Both theme floors are located in the Parks Hall residences, are co-ed and open to residents of all academic years.
Outdoor Adventure and Wellness Floor:

The active living community is for those students who pursue an active lifestyle. Whether it’s skiing, hiking, fishing, working out in the gym or intercollegiate sports or intramurals, this community will allow the opportunity to interact with other active livers and learn about a variety of recreational activities that can be done throughout your life to achieve personal goals and fitness. Residents of this community will have the opportunity (not required) to network with the on-campus G.O.A. L (Get Out And Live) Program offered through the Office of Recreation and Intramural Programs.
