Residence Life


The Office of Residence Life hires Resident Associates (RA's), sponsors the Distinguished Speaker Series and assists with new student orientation.  Residence Life also administers the Don Shepard Fun Fund and the Don Shepard Contest.  Fun Fund money, which is awarded by lottery, may be used for a nice dinner or a cultural event.  The annual Don Shepard Contest awards several students funding for a program of self-enrichment outside of science.
