Although it can be a busy semester with so much to fit in, we try and have some fun along the way too! During the semester two community event planners (a student worker position) work with the Residence Director to plan events and community-building activities. With so many opportunities in the city, we try to balance a mix of on and off campus activities. Activities from past semesters include:

  • On Campus:
    • Trivia night
    • Political debate watch party and tailgate
    • Watch parties for other major events such as championships, awards shows, season finales, etc.
    • Apartment cook offs and Potlucks
    • Game nights
    • Christmas tree decorating and holiday party
  • Off Campus:
    • Monument/Museum tours
    • Sporting events (DC has NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, NWSL, WNBA, and Division I college teams)
    • Cultural events (such as festivals, embassy tours, parades)
    • Concerts (there are opportunities to see indie bands at small venues all the way up to the opera or the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center)
