Welcome to New House 5. Yes, it's the top floor of a brand new dormitory at a prestigious university. But it's also something much more. For fifty-six freshmen, it's home. It's a place where friends are made and doors are always open. It's a place where hearts are broken and tears are shed. And for Andy Butler, it's the best story about friendship he has ever known. Andy is the resident assistant for New House 5, and it's his responsibility to bring the floor together, to support everyone, through their triumphs and through their letdowns. Join Andy as he shows how New House 5 becomes a family and then falls apart when hidden problems come to light. Watch as these students try to overcome their flaws and fears to create a bond so special that nothing can pull them apart. Not even themselves.
