KPC Health Fair benefitted many

KPC Dorms transitioned to KPC Res Life brand


The public is being advised that referring to KRC’s student housing as the KPC Dorms is so yesterday- here forward, the new facility is being branded under the Residence Life umbrella.

“And that is because students and staff of the KRC Residence Hall have proven that the hall is much more than just a dorm. As a group of active and engaging students, they have turned the KRC Residence Hall into a thriving and active community. Thank you to all the residents and staff for making the KRC Residence Hall the great community that is KRC Residence Life,” said Tammie Willis, KRC associate director of residence life.
