STUDENT Testimonials

Naismith was so accommodating with the early move in date for recruitment, and they made the process the same for girls moving in early as they would on a normal move in day. I made some of the best friends going through recruitment at Naismith and deciding to live there was the best decision I could have made for my freshman year of college.


Naismith was awesome during formal recruitment! Move in was super easy and organized and everyone was really helpful during the week before school!


During rush week the Naismith staff was available at any time to help with all of the needs that any of the girls had. You also can't beat the pool when you're tired and stressed from long day of rush events.
