Volunteer: 10th Annual Residence Hall House Calls

Housing and Residential Life is proud to announce the date for our 10th annual Residence Hall House Calls, an event which connects students living in our residence halls with our wonderful faculty, staff and administrators. This event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 from 5:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Residence Hall House Calls is a one-night commitment where university employees volunteer to visit with students in the students’ element: the residence halls. The goals of the program are:

  • To assist first year students in acclimating to campus life by addressing any concerns or questions about Eastern (we will provide you with all necessary materials)
  • To enhance the academic and personal success of all students by providing a connection within the campus community
  • To utilize faculty and staff as beneficial resources in supporting students. By making a “house call” we hope to reach students who are unfamiliar with or otherwise might not seek out the resources available on campus.
  • To have FUN and interact with students outside of a classroom setting

The evening of Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 will begin with a catered dinner for volunteers as well as a brief informational session held in Tawanka 215. Afterwards, volunteers will be given a specific residence hall and floor to visit between 6:00 and 8:30 p.m.

The success of this program is largely dependent upon the representation of university employees. All that is required of you is a friendly smile and a desire to help our students feel welcome and at home on Eastern’s campus. Please consider participating in this valuable program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Housing and Residential Life assistants, Ariel Leigh, Dnell Conrad or Rachel Nokes at ext. 2423.
