One excellent way to become involved in your community and the campus is to participate in your RLC Community Council. The Council is an organization within each community that gives students the chance to help shape the culture of their RLC. By planning educational, social, intellectual, and athletic activities, students create a community that becomes more than just a place to sleep. The Council is the place to bring up any concerns you have, from ideas for programs in your RLC to problems with the physical aspects of your building. Council members represent and express the ideas and opinions of their fellow residents, which is an excellent way to develop their leadership potential.
