Cultivate students are housed in Camino and Founders halls. The Camino Founders community is located on main campus, providing students a short walk to class. Students living in this area enjoy its close proximity to multiple dining areas, Founders Chapel, and Copley Library. Please note that Camino and Founders Hall have doubles (limited), triples and quadruple rooms. Both halls have several shared bathrooms within each building, with multiple shower stalls, toilets and sinks in each bathroom. All residents on the floor share these bathrooms, regardless of the room occupancy type. 


Begin quote Throughout their time at USD, students cultivate knowledge, relationships, skills and much more. But what I love about the Cultivate LLC is that there is always a strong emphasis on real-world application. Students learn to think critically about the impact of their actions on the environment and the community. Ultimately, I believe students within the Cultivate LLC graduate from USD prepared to face the most pressing challenges in the world today. – Paige Hopkins, Facilitating Scholastic Assistant for Cultivate

Begin quote The thing I truly love about the Cultivate LLC is that it is a home for those who not only care about the environment and the world around them, but it can also be a place for those that want to grow themselves and their peers. Being a Cultivator means that you can not only instill change in the environment and Earth, but also in yourself and in your peers. College is a time where you learn a lot about yourself and learn to grow, and Cultivate LLC is the perfect environment for just that. – Tomy Vettukallel, Coaching Residential Assistant for Cultivate
