ABOUT THE DIRECTOR

ABOUT THE COMMUNITY   Philippi Hall Photo

Philippi Hall is home to the International Community floor, which pairs international and domestic students who share and learn about other cultures, traditions and languages. Residents have travelled together to Portland for dining experiences and have gone on camping trips, among other things. During Culture Share programs, IC students offer peers insight into their lives and often include culinary presentations.

Philippi Hall is also home to STEM Honors, an honors program for exceptional Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics majors. There is an application process for STEM majors; interested students should contact Mike Wing at mcwing@usm.maine.edu.

Philippi's doubles, singles, and 3 and 4 person suites offer upperclass students attractive living options. Philippi has a newly remodeled kitchen, laundry facilities, vending machines, multiple quiet study areas, a TV lounge with a large flat screen, a conference room that can be reserved by students and groups, Ping Pong and pool tables, common lounges on each floor and an elevator. A large, convenient parking area behind the hall makes finding a parking space a breeze.

LOCATION

Philippi Hall is located across from the student center and dining hall and just down the hill from the Costello Sports Complex.  It is also a short walk across the parking lot from the baseball and softball fields.

WHAT MAKES PHILIPPI HALL A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE

The hall has been nicknamed "Chilippi" by its residents, because everyone enjoys hanging out together.  Philippi also offers a wide variety of living options.
