RossIMG_Animatesm.gif
Grand Bahama Island – Hundreds of landlords and property owners turned out to a town meeting held at the Foster B. Pestaina Centre on Monday, September 29th to pre-register and hear how they could become eligible to provide housing for Ross medical school students who will begin school in January 2009 at the Seahorse Plaza interim campus in Freeport.

Sandi Cutler, Ross Vice President for Planning and Business Development gave a brief history on Ross University, and explained the steps necessary for landlords to become listed with the Ross University rental registry which will be available to all Ross students by October 20th through their housing website. Most Ross students cannot take the time away from their studies to travel to a new place and search for housing.    By using the university's housing referral service they are able to obtain trustworthy information and arrange their housing conveniently. This service is voluntary for students/faculty/staff and landlords, however 90% of Ross students use it.
