West Quad RA/HR Update

Welcome to the Spring Semester! Happy 2014!

Spring Semester Floor Meetings

Floor meetings are an essential component of your RA position and very important for first year communities. At the start of the semester you may have transfer students or students who are new to the community. It is important that you help ease them into the spring semester and help the transfer students adjust to Denison.

RAs must inform their HRs by 1/20 of the date of their First Spring Semester Floor Meetings. Floor meetings must be held within the first two weeks of the semester.

Topics to Cover at Floor Meeting:

Introduction of community members (to help the new students learn about who lives in their community)

Review of Expectations and Code of Student Conduct

Academic Support (students may have been hit with reality after their first semester grades)

Things to look forward to: Recruitment, Housing Lottery, Spring Break Closing Meetings (more on that later), Spring Break Leadershape

SPRING INSERVICE: February 26th 2014

Spring Semester Community Meetings

The community meetings in the spring went very well and we will continue having 1-2 community meetings throughout the year for First Year students. Our spring community meetings will take place anytime between Feb. 23rd and March 7th. You will determine a time that works for all your staff members. Molly must know the date of your building's community meetings by 2/19 so she can properly advertise.
