Communitas - Campisi Hall
Programs & Themed Floors
Programming in Communitas strives to be intentional, creative, informative, inclusive, and awesome. Thanks to the ingenuity and hard work of each staff member within our building as well as input from residents, our community has multiple events scheduled per week. Whether you are interested in engaging in a service project, learning outside of the classroom, or mingling with your peers at a social event, Communitas organizes events for all. Shout out to our Community Council, a student-run organization within our building, which also plays an integral role in our community. This organization plans and masterfully executes our traditional Monday Night Socials.
The ACT Pledge- a promise to complete a minimum of one Communitas sponsored service project per quarter- is an optional commitment that Communitas residents can agree to complete. The purpose of this pledge is to inspire new and returning Communitas residents to get involved and make a positive impact within our local community. It is our hope that returning students will see the benefit of serving and inspiring others to do the same.
Communitas is Latin for "community" and embodies the spirit of fellowship that students enjoy in this RLC. Communitas embraces and relies upon students to shape its theme and activities. We strive to be a place that fosters connection because knowing your neighbors is essential to working and growing with them. We are also varied and flexible in emphasis; no matter what your passion is or who you want to help, Communitas can support you. Communitas provides many opportunities for community-based learning, civic engagement, and exploring local ways to make a difference. We embody our motto, "Local Action with Compassion."
What do we value?
