Residential College Association: 3.26.12

Residential College Association met Monday evening to discuss important events occurring both in the residential and University zones of campus.

Amidst the tragedy occurring on March 15 regarding the death of a student on campus, Student Affairs Vice President Don Robertson urged anyone needing counseling for the events can visit counselors in the Psychological Center in Applied Science.

To meet the large needs for counseling over the past couple of weeks, a small open forum will be held on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the small Curris Center ballroom. Counselors will be on hand to discuss handling grief and the pains of human loss.

On April 18, Lovett Auditorium steps will again host the immensely popular All-Campus Sing. Campus programs and residential colleges are preparing for what looks to be a very competitive event.

Paula Amols, director of Dining Services, announced the installation of a new convenient store similar to Fasttrack. Diminutive in size, the store will be open from 8 p.m. to midnight Sunday through Thursday and will have snacks, drinks, laundry detergent and toilet paper available in order to better meet the needs of the stand-alone housing structures.

Should the store prove successful, Amols said the store could see expansion over the summer in preparation for the fall semester.

Derrick McReynolds, assistant director for Resident Education, said two information sessions for those interested in Residential Advisor positions will be held on March 28 and 29 at 9 p.m. in the Curris Center Stables.

On Friday, residents from Clark, Franklin, Richmond and Hester are encouraged to attend open interviews being held for vacant Residential Director positions beginning fall 2012. Contact McReynolds at for more information.

Elections are soon for open positions within RCA Executive Board. Contact current RCA President Jonah Waggoner at for information regarding positions and how to gain access to the application process.
