Life @ Doane
Doane is a great place to live on the way to the degree and job you’ve always wanted. In fact, more than 75 percent of students live on campus.
Four residence halls are available for first-year and transfer students with great amenities like air conditioning, Wi-Fi, free laundry and kitchen facilities. What makes them different? Their residence hall vibe.
Renovations in 2009 brought much needed A/C, a tiered theatre, pool table, ping pong, and bbq patio. What didn’t change– the relaxed, homey atmosphere where you can make friends easily.
A soothing, zen appeal greets you in this hall. However, this calm interior is full of dynamic, fun spaces – music studio, TV lounge, large back patio with fireplace and lawn chess, and much more.
The #1 thing residents want you to check out: THE coolest basement gaming room with Wii, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and two large screen TVs. Renovated in 2011, the hall is sleek and modern with a loungy feel.
Its full name is Hansen Leadership Hall– as in be prepared to hone your skills and get involved! This hall is known for its perfect mix of quiet for studying and ease of finding friends when study time is over.
Known as "the quad", Burrage provides a homey atmosphere for upperclassmen wanting to live with a big group of their friends!
On campus, you have three dining options:
MAIN DINING HALL
Nicknamed “The Caf” by students, it’s run by a professional food service company. It serves varied menus in a traditional sit-down atmosphere. Choose from 10 to 21 meals each week.
On-the-go and made-to-order gourmet items like grilled sandwiches, chicken strips, burgers, fresh salads and wraps.
Lakeside Coffee Shop
Fresh-brewed Starbuck’s Best Coffee along with smoothies, cocoa, energy drinks as well as pastries, bagels and other snacks. The best part: you can enjoy it in a funky, fun common area where some nights musicians take the stage.
