Residence Life at Southern Nazarene University, Bethany Oklahoma

Bracken Hall Lobby

Bracken Hall is the freshman female residence hall and is quaintly nestled near the heart of the campus.This residence hall primarily focuses on first year, female students and offers intellectual, social, and recreational opportunities for residents to meet and interact with colleagues in informal settings. Although Bracken mainly houses freshman females there are are approximately 30 upperclassmen that call Bracken their home. Building activities are planned by the 4 female Resident Assistants assigned to Bracken and activities are social, educational and passive. Resident Assistants also provide spiritual guidance and positively contribute to this wonderful living area.

Your room has been cleaned and is presented to you in a standard condition. To be properly cleared at the time you vacate the apartment/room, it must be vacated in the same standard condition in which you have found it. 

All rooms are subject to periodic inspections by University personnel. Students are expected to keep their areas orderly & reasonably clean. Rooms vacated in a non-standard condition will be charged against your room deposit per occupant, plus the cost of returning the room to standard condition.

Bracken Hall was named for long-time President Archie K. Bracken (1920-27 and 1930-42).
