The Department of Housing and Residential Education staff members and student leaders are excited about starting the 2012-2013 academic year!
The Department of Housing and Residential Education is committed to creating and sustaining an environment that encourages students’ academic success as well as enhances their personal growth. The Department’s staff members focus on creating and developing educational programs, activities, and community service opportunities that promote academic success and educate students outside of the classroom.
We had a number of successes during the 2011-2012 academic year and hope to build upon our continuous hard work and perseverance. There are numerous highlights to share from the 2011-2012 academic year. The Resident Assistant staff organized:
- educational opportunities,
- social activities, and
- encouraged participation in/attendance at numerous activities on campus.
The University Village Hall Council (UVHC) complemented the Residential Education schedule by successfully sponsoring/co-sponsoring educational/social programs during the year as well as facilitating fundraisers and community service projects for the residents of The University Village community.
As a result of the efforts of the Resident Assistant staff and the University Village Hall Council, residents enjoyed:
- an array of fun games and events during Welcome Weekend 2011,
- movie nights every month throughout the academic year,
- an interactive, diversity-driven community thanksgiving dinner, and
- educational programs to help residents adjust to college life.
Our staff and student leaders, including a brand new housing-based organization, the National Residence Hall Honorary, are looking forward to providing residents with an even greater experience this year!!! We encourage students to become involved in activities, apply for leadership opportunities, and find ways to give back to The University Village community and the Purdue University Calumet campus.
The following information offered in The University Village Welcome Guide is provided to help you prepare for the next exciting step in your academic career! Please review the information carefully and contact us if you have any questions. Enjoy the rest of the summer! We look forward to seeing you soon
Wishing you a truly successful academic year,
Department of Housing and Residential Education
