Who are the Rez Lifers?
Residence Life Facilitators fill a crucial role in the residence system. These upper-year student leaders know the ins and outs of the residence community, acting as important resources and holders of institutional memory while they bring enriching programs to new students throughout the year.
At the end of August and the beginning of September, Rez Life Facilitators work hard to organize residence-wide welcome events that help first year students adjust to their surroundings in a fun and interactive way. Once the dust has settled on orientation week, the 'Rez Lifers' continue to host residence-wide events throughout the year in correspondence with their individual protfolios. These include: Rez Warz events, the Faculty-in-Rez speaker series, French coversation groups, community engagement activities, Inter-Residence Council and Environmental Residence Council mentorship, and an energy-saving competition called Fight the Power.
The 2015-2016 Rez Lifer team consists of:
Maame Yaa Brako - Living Learning Communities Facilitator
Jad El Tal - IRC Advisor
Ellie Joung - IRC Advisor
Sonja Lehmann - Faculty in Residences Facilitator
Paige Rumelt - Rez Warz Facilitator
