Living in a residence hall is about more than a place to sleep and do homework. Halls are a place to connect with friends, learn outside the classroom, and explore the opportunities college presents. Ashland University Residence Life facilitates programs each month in each resident hall, designed by student staff members based on the current needs and wants of residents.
Why We Do It
Programming is a way to enhance residential experiences and cultivate an environment of respect within the halls through fun, educational, and eye opening experiences.
How We Do It
PRE-TEST: In a conscious effort to meet the needs of each residential unit community in regards to what type of programming the students need and want, Resident Assistants will distribute a survey to their residents at the first mandatory floor meeting within the school year. This is a simple survey that showcases the University’s student learning objectives and asks students where they hope to grow. This will serve as a programming guide for RAs throughout the year.
POST-TEST: An assessment survey will be given to residents after every completed program. This is to ensure that each RA is striving to meet the learning objectives outlined by the University. The surveys will also allow RAs to assess their programs and see the successful components, as well as some challenging areas.
ADVERTISING: RAs will utilize a number of means to communicate programs to residents. Be on the look out for info via:
- Text Message
- Under the door handouts
- Individual Student Dry-Erase Boards
RAs are required to complete 1 program each month for: September - April. Programs are planned to include the University's Student Learning Outcomes.
