Participating in these programs should help residents build a stronger connection with each other and create a positive climate within the residence.  Often times, our staff members will plan small programs for their particular center or residence, but programs can also be run in conjunction with another staff member or as a larger staff group. Residence Life staff members each have a small budget to help provide unique and well-received programs for their residents.

Residence Coordinators and Residence Coordinator Team Leaders are required to offer at least three programs per semester, one of which must fit an educational theme. In addition, RCTLs must conduct one social late night program per semester.
