University Housing Hosts House Calls for the 10th Year2014-08-22 14:28:54 SIUE.edu
For the 10th consecutive year, SIUE University Housing hosted House Calls this week in first-year residence halls for freshmen.
On-campus residents in Prairie, Woodland and Bluff halls received a ?House Call? on Wednesday. The event is an official University welcome to students in their new home and allows them a chance to ask any questions they might have regarding their dorms, their classes, the campus, the University or any other issue.
Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Narbeth Emmanuel and Eddie the Cougar were among those SIUE administrators who visited the freshmen halls this year.
Michael Schultz, director of University Housing, noted the friendships that were already forming in the new communities. ?It was refreshing to meet with new members of our community,? Schultz said. ?All of the residents I spoke with were very happy to be at SIUE and excited about opportunities ahead of them. You can see the new friendships that have developed in less than a week?s time.?
The number of University representatives who are a part of House Calls has continued to increase over the years. This year, 66 volunteers from across campus welcomed students. Vicky Dean, assistant director for Residential Education and House Calls coordinator, expressed gratitude about the continued success of the program and campus partners.
?I would say the House Calls program was a definite success,? Dean said. ?We had a number of first time volunteers who wanted to be part of this special opportunity. Volunteers distributed treats and handy posters with a checklist of 57 things to do before they graduate.?
Southern Illinois University Edwardsville provides students with a high quality, affordable education that prepares them for successful careers and lives of purpose. Built on the foundation of a broad-based liberal education, and enhanced by hands-on research and real-world experiences, the academic preparation SIUE students receive equips them to thrive in the global marketplace and make our communities better places to live. Situated on 2,660 acres of beautiful woodland atop the bluffs overlooking the natural beauty of the Mississippi River?s rich bottom land and only a short drive from downtown St. Louis, the SIUE campus is home to a diverse student body of nearly 14,000.
Three Woodland Hall residents are pictured from left to right: Housing Resident Assistant Chelsea Pierce, Gianni Bennett and Alana Bunfill. The SIUE students enjoy a night of House Calls with Chancellor Julie Furst-Bowe, Eddie the Cougar and Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Narbeth Emmanuel.
