Current and new residential college residents are encouraged to get involved by suggesting and helping with program planning, getting to know affiliated faculty/staff, and/or considering running for a student leadership position. Those interested should contact their residential college faculty master and/or student president for more information.
Students who do not live in a residential college can still participate in the residential college program by becoming a dues-paying "non-resident" member. Non-resident members are members of the residential college who live in a different building on campus (a residence hall, another residential college) or off-campus (apartment, home).
Residential colleges inform non-resident members about upcoming college events with periodic e-mail messages. Besides taking advantage of college activities, non-resident members may be eligible for housing and residential membership for the subsequent year. Each residential college maintains a "point system" to reward participation in college activities, and a certain number of points is necessary to be eligible for housing. The non-resident member should review his/her residential college's constitution and point system and contact an executive board member during winter quarter if he/she is interested in living "in-house." Students must turn in their application to the Office of Residential Academic Initiatives and be accepted by the college before they can earn any points.
Students interested in non-resident membership should visit the Office of Residential Academic Initiatives at 2122 Sheridan, Room 120, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
