Around this time each year, students run and are voted by the student body to be on the Residence Council for the following year. At Quest, we have floor reps, similar to RA’s at a standard university, yet we operate differently and are voted in by the students. As a council there are 21 of us, all living on different floors in residence. We help to create a community in the residence, and bring people together by hosting fun events and different programming. We are also a support system for students, and bring concerns and ideas to student affairs staff.
.This year I was elected to be a floor rep in Riverside, one of the two mature housing units. It’s March Madness in Riverside this month! Myself along with the two other floor reps in Riverside host monthly events, but with the end of the year coming soon we decided to do a lot in March.
We hosted banana splits the first week of block! There was an awesome turn out, people got to have a treat and hang out with others that live in the building. Some played cards while others socialized in the room.
