Residence Life focuses on ensuring that high standards of community living are present and that students have the opportunity to grow within their environment. Getting involved in residence helps you to make friends, build relationships, gain valuable work experience, further develop your leadership skills and helps make the most out of your residence experience.
Get an early start in September…
In the early weeks in September, at both North and Lakeshore Residences, you can come out and learn about the leadership and involvement opportunities in residence, on campus and in the community. Look for advertising in Residence for more details.
Rez Council provides the opportunity to work in partnership with the Residence Life Staff to creative a positive environment and create events for the entire residence building. The committee is comprised of executive positions and floor representatives. If there is something you would like to see happen, come out to a meeting or talk with a committee member. Past events run by these committees include: pictures with Santa, mixtape mania, gourmet grilled cheese making, residence formal and a backyard bash.
The Leadership Institute works to inspire and craft leadership qualities in students. This is a one day event presented in a series of workshops. The Institute is designed to help students “find their fit” within the institution and gain the skills necessary for effective leadership in student positions and beyond. Students take part in sessions on goal setting, group dynamics, time management, leadership styles as well as leadership opportunities on campus. The Leadership Institute is a certificate program that will take place in January.
ASB is a volunteer, service-learning based trip that takes place during reading week. These trips allow students to travel, enhance their leadership skills and have a true life-changing experience. Last year, we (a group of residence students and staff) travelled to New Orleans to build homes for victims of Hurricane Katrina. This year, students will have the chance to take part in two trips (although you will have to pick one as they run at the same time). We will be taking students to Biloxi, Mississippi on a Habitat for Humanity build, and our second trip will be to an orphanage to the Dominincan Republic. Both trips take place during reading week in February. Applications are available at the Front Desk in October 2013.
Rez bucks are given out to students for attending residence programs, contributions to their community, or kind gestures. They are given out by Residence Life Staff throughout the entire year. At the end of the year students can participate in the Rez Buck draw to win great prizes, such as an iPod, DVDs, gift certificates and much more!
This Forum is an advisory committee that meets once a month to discuss food service and residence issues. This committee takes suggestions from the residence population on how to improve food and/or service quality. These concerns are presented directly, by you to our Food Service and Residence Management teams. Food Forum members also participate in special events provided by Food Services. Lakeshore Forums run on the last Wednesday of the month at 6:00pm in the first floor lounge, and at North: at 6:00pm in T132 on the last Thursday of the Month. Watch for posters reminding you of the forums.
An LLC is a place to live and to learn! A place where students connect what they are learning in the classroom to activities outside the classroom and the world around them. Students in each community, share experiences, have fun, and learn together. Each floor is a vibrant place to live and call home.
Within each LLC experience is individualized community programming facilitated by the Residence Life Staff and students within the community. LLCs provide the incredible opportunity for students, staff and faculty to come together for shared interests.
For more information please refer to the LLC webpage.
Every January, the RA application process for the following academic year begins. Interested residents should prepare their resumes and watch for job posting notices around the buildings. For more information, or to apply, talk to the RA on your floor or contact your Residence Life Coordinator (RLC). Residence Life staff provide a safe and supportive environment on their floors. They are mentors and confidants and develop lasting relationships with their residents. They are fully trained in a variety of areas including program development, mentorship, crisis management, and conduct management.
Welcome Week is a chance for first year residents to participate in events on campus and around the city. It is a great week to become acquainted with the school and make new friendships to start the year. The Orientation Committee plans and carries out Welcome Week.
