When you move in you can expect to meet a lot of new people. You'll be meeting other students like yourself as well as becoming acquainted with various staff members. You will meet the Housing & Residence Life in-hall staff who are responsible for creating a positive living environment and helping you adjust to college life. Most important will be your Resident Assistant (RA). They are a student like you. Each RA is assigned to a floor section--a group of rooms--for which they are responsible. Your RA is trained to answer your questions, foster community living, and be a resource to you. During the first few days, your floor section will meet with your RA to discuss the activities and hall guidelines. The emphasis is on creating a safe and healthy living environment. As a member of a new community, you have input and a responsibility to create your community and maintain a comfortable living area.
You may also meet the Residential Custodial Services staff (RCS), who are responsible for keeping public areas such as the bathrooms and lounges of your building clean. They appreciate and expect your assistance in maintaining and preserving public areas. Bromley, Adams, Tanaka, Sowle, Carr, and Luchs Hall residents are responsible for cleaning their own shared bathrooms and should bring their own cleaning supplies. You are responsible for the cleanliness of your own room and for your own trash removal.
