Housing & Residence Life

Student Leadership Opportunities in the Residence Halls

East Campus Council (ECC)

Each residence hall elects representatives to serve as their house government, the House Council.  House Councils plan events for the house, make decisions about using house funding, and serve as an advocacy group to give voice to first year student issues.  Elections for House Council representatives take place in early fall semester.

East Campus Council is a network of representatives from each house and has the mission of building community within the first year class.  This is accomplished through facilitating campus-wide events and acting as a liaison between the class leadership and the house community.  East Campus Council also serves as the Class Council for each first year class.

Traditional events organized for the first year class:
Midnight Breakfast (fall and spring)
Night with the Hypnotist
Spring Carnival
Community Service event

West Campus House Council

Each house has a council charged with providing community events, advocating for community improvements, and communicating community concerns. Elections are generally held in the spring with remaining open positions filled in the fall.

House councils utilize house council funds to sponsor events as well as purchase house memorabilia. Examples of events include cookouts, trips to DPAC, faculty dinners, and community service projects.
