Tips for a good first year
How you can get involved in residence!
- become a floor representative
- duties: advocate for your floor during House Council meetings with the House President, Residence Facilitator, senior don, and other floor reps of your building; help plan and attend house-wide events
- become a first-year intern
- duties: to be updated in September 2018
- attend events hosted by ResSoc, your House President, and don
- this is a great way to meet new people living in your community and try something new! Ever been to a corn maze? How about pumpkin carving, or a hiking trip with your building? These are the types of events you'll get to experience through ResSoc and your dons!
