Welcome to Taft College!  We are pleased you have joined our educational community and hope that the time you spend here is rewarding both personally and educationally.  This handbook is provided to assist you while you reside in a TC residence hall.  The primary duties of staff members are to look after the safety and well-being of the resident students.  You should contact the person on duty if you have a question, problem, or emergency.

Please be aware of the regulations in this handbook and those of Taft College.  Remember, it is important in any group-living situation to respect the rights of others and to also accept responsibility for your own actions.
