Get involved with Hall Council
March 31, 2011 § Leave a comment
A pizza party, pajamas, and a luau. These are just a few of the themes for New Hall and New Center’s Hall Council meetings.
Each week, New Hall’s council meetings have a different theme to attract residents. Every residence hall has a Hall Council meeting once a week. Why go to these meetings? It is important for residents to attend council meetings so they can learn about upcoming events in their residence hall. By going to your hall’s council meetings regularly, you can keep yourself up to date on the activities, issues, successes, and challenges surrounding residence life. It is also a great way to get to know people in your hall and your RAs and hall director. Most importantly, you can let your voice be heard if you have ideas or concerns about anything.
If you are interested in gaining leadership experience, running to be a hall council board member is a wonderful option. Positions are available for president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. Elections are held at the beginning of fall semester each year. As a board member of your hall’s council, you will learn more about how the residence halls function and you will get the chance to listen to the residents in your hall while getting to know them better.
Attending hall council meetings is one of the best ways to get involved with your residence hall and get to know your peers. Get involved.
Speak. Lead. Explore. Learn. Grow.
