Students always talk to their parents about getting involved at the College. Move-in, first day of classes, and the first test that carries 30% of the total grade are all stresses I faced within my first few weeks of classes. Still, I wanted to figure out how to get involved on campus during my Freshman year.
First and foremost, I am excited for those students joining us in the Residence Halls this year! For parents who have already started talking to their student about involvement on–campus, the Residence Hall Association is a great first step!
The Residence Hall Association consists of nine Hall Governments, one for each Residence Hall. It’s mission and goal is provide residents with best, most memorable on-campus experience–we like to call the College our “Home Sweet CofC”. By running and serving in a Hall Government position, residents have the opportunity to be a leader in building community and in helping instill positive changes in the Halls.
However, none of this is possible without resident-input and leadership. If your student is looking to get involved, please consider suggesting the Residence Hall Association! Applications for Hall Government are currently posted on OrgSync® (charleston.orgysnc.com/org/rha/Elections). Students may also find more information on that website as well. We’d love to have them on our team!
Thank you so much for your time and best wishes,
Michael Eugenio Chew
