Residential College Association: 4.16.20

The Residential College Association met Monday afternoon to discuss the final three weeks of campus activities and prepare for elections for new officers.

Don Robertson, vice president of Student Affairs, reminded students to attend the University’s most important annual event, All-Campus Sing. The pre-show begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday, with the actual competition starting at 4:30 p.m.

Robertson also discussed the busy weekend ahead with the campus hosting its first Summer Orientation for the fall semester, coupled with the half-marathon taking place in Murray on Saturday.

Derrick McReynolds, assistant director of Residence Education, announced the hiring of four new Residential Directors for Hester, Franklin, Richmond and Clark. The new hires have not been assigned as of yet, and an announcement of their placement will come in the future.

Black Student Council will hold an event titled Love and Basketball on Friday at 6 p.m. in the Wellness Center. The sign-up sheet is located on the second floor of the Curris Center and the cost is $10 per team. The winners of the tournament will take home $300, with $150 going to the charity of their choice.

On Monday, April 23, at 4:30 p.m., students are encouraged to join RCA and the Student Government Association in the freshman parking lot to help assist with creating the world’s largest game of Duck-Duck-Goose.

The current record is 2,200 participants playing the game for 15 minutes, and lead-organizer Jonah Waggoner hopes to see the record eclipsed.

“It’s a great unity event,” Waggoner said. “How cool would it be to break a world record playing a game from your childhood?”

Elizabeth College is sponsoring a kickball tournament called Save Second Base in an effort to raise money for the breast cancer awareness group at Murray-Calloway County Hospital. Starting at 9:30 a.m. on April 28 at the softball fields, residential college, Greek and independent teams of no more than 15 should bring $30 to enter the tournament, with all proceeds going to the hospital. The tournament is double-elimination.
