The Linden Lodge, the only off-campus dorm, will change to 24/7 visitation on Oct. 15.

The dorm, a renovated hotel located off Interstate 70 on Hawks Nest Drive, will become the only single-gender hall to allow this.

Change was spurred into action when Area Coordinator Donna Filkins held a floor meeting earlier this month to gather opinions of the residents. A survey was sent out and “an overwhelmingly [sic] majority of residents voted to modify the visitation hours to 24/7,” Associate Vice President of Student Life and Diversity Shane Williamson wrote in an email.

Last month, Calvert Rogers and Rauch Memorial Halls, Lindenwood’s only co-ed dorms, made history by becoming the first to allow 24/7 visitation. The Linden Lodge, Calvert and Rauch all are upperclassmen dorms. 

All other dorms on campus have 24-hour visitation on the weekends and noon to midnight Monday-Thursday, but other off-campus housing has had 24/7 visitation since last fall.

Kayla is our multimedia producer, so basically all things video and podcasts. She prefers to cover human interest stories because she believes we learn best by hearing personal testimonies of grief, passion, tribulation and activism. When Kayla is not editing or writing, most likely she is either hiking or eating. And by eating she doesn’t mean fast food, college grub, but the St. Louis restaurant scene (which is to die for). She is a proud St. Louisan and is passionate about being a part in the city's redemption. Look for the girl with the stickered out water bottle on campus and say hi.
