Ways Residence Life Staffs Can Be Involved...
- Have your own "Cannes
Film Festival". Incorporate some films that address issues surrounding
alcohol abuse or personal safety in the area lounge. Also, consider
using last season's confrontation about alcohol abuse on The Real World.
- Conduct a progressive
party with each hall responsible for a different food/beverage/dessert
and then have people make the rounds from one hall to the other.
- Invite one of the
campus counselors/members of the health center to be the guest for the
night. Have them give a presentation that evening but then hang out
- Have a mocktail
- Do something to
get in shape every day, a fun run on Monday, swimming on Tuesday, aerobics
or weight training on Wednesday, etc.
- Perform peer theatre
or skits on educational topics such as alcohol poisoning or sexual assault,
followed by a discussion.
- Have your own talk
show one night in the lounge, using your own version of Lovelines to
start a discussion on relationships.
- Do your own version
of 'the life experience wall' where you ask people to write down on
index cards how the abuse of alcohol or other drugs has affected their
fife. These cards then make up the "bricks of the wall.
- Hand out laminated
"saving a life from alcohol poisoning" cards to each resident.
