Favourite event I have attended in the past:
Really any event that I have gotten free food at in the past has been my favourite event haha, which happens more often than not. Really though, I think that my favourite event that I have attended as a resident in the past was a Bob Ross paint night. I got to relax with other fun people who were pretty much on the same level in terms of artistic talent, and yet we all managed to end up with a pretty nice piece of art in the end to decorate our rooms! It was a nice night to relax and de-stress.
The event I am most excited about planning this upcoming year:
This year I am planning several events that will have free food, but I think I am the most excited for the one where we make our own pizzas (with dough made from scratch). I’m excited because I did this event once in the past, and it went very well, and my residents were super creative with the toppings. In addition, residents get to acquire a skill that they can use in their daily lives.
One piece of advice for incoming residents:
Despite what you may think, house meetings and events in residence really do make the difference. You don’t only get important information, but you make connections, check in with your residence family and Don, and most importantly, you’re almost guaranteed FREE FOOD!
