Residence Life at Southern Nazarene University, Bethany Oklahoma

Snowbarger Hall Room

Snowbarger Hall is SNU's only all male Residence Hall. Snowbarger has a rich tradition and houses a majority of the freshmen men as well as approximately 60 upperclassmen. Snowbarger Hall features exciting programming, custom planned for each year's residents. Some examples of popular events include laser tag, disc golf tournaments, video game tournaments, gladiator games, and individual events for each hallway in the building.

The common theme of Snowbarger centers on the close knit community that is developed while living in a traditional style residence hall. On any given night resident's doors will be open throughout the building welcoming all to come in and hang out. These are times when close friendships are formed, life-long bonds are created and memories made.

Like all residence halls, Snowbarger has a wonderful Residence Life staff. The staff includes eight young men who are selected as Resident Advisors. The RA's do a great job providing comfortable living conditions, building relationships among residents and providing spiritual guidance. Overall, Snowbarger Hall provides a fantastic and memorable living experience for all residents.
