This is the sentiment I heard from the students at last night’s debriefing forum on the 3-day event. And the administration agreed it should return next year in some form or another. Sign me up!
I learned so much about the people I work for: the students. After all, the college experience is way more than the classroom. It’s about meeting diverse people from all over the world. RIT is truly international.
So what will be some of the outcomes of the first Dorm Challenge? The administration will be working hard to improve such areas as overcrowding (making the lounges truly lounges again), wireless connection and bus schedules.
As for the food, I thought it was pretty good. My advice: Grab a piece of fruit with you each time when you go back to your room. Many students felt the food was better the past three days only because the administration was in the house. I promise I will come back to Gracie’s for an unannounced visit to taste for myself.
Thanks again to Ozzie and Everett in Sol 7008 for your hospitality. And thanks to Student Government for organizing the event and allowing the administration to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the student experience (even the 5:20 a.m. fire alarm).
I’m ready for next year. Let the tradition begin!
