the stress of finals looming and the end of the quarter rapidly approaching, what could be better for residents than a fun way to relieve stress and give back to those in need? For residents of Muir Hall and Trinity Hall, “Muirinity Friendsgiving” was a festive way to celebrate the holidays and raise money for Shelterbox, a charity that provides food and other supplies to those 12
affected by disasters. For one dollar, residents could “pie” any member of their community council, or for two dollars, they could pie any of the twelve Resident Advisors from Muir and Trinity. At the end of the event, the two community councils held an auction to determine who would pie the Josh and Ashley, the Coordinators of Student Development from Muir and Trinity. Residents also enjoyed
free pumpkin and apple pie, along with an opportunity to meet new friends from other residence halls. By the end of the night,
Muir and Trinity raised one hundred dollars for Shelterbox, a charity which provides emergency supply kits
to people affected by natural disasters and other humanitarian crises. According to Shelterbox’s website, they have provided aid to individuals in over 95 locations around the world, and they continue to deliver boxes with tents, water purification equipment, utensils, and other crucial supplies to help those during times of need. Muir and Trinity decided to contribute to Shelterbox in the spirit of giving back to
others during the Thanksgiving holiday. According to Kelly Carroll, a resident from Trinity Hall, the event was a “fun way to bring everyone together” and a “great excuse to pie [her] friends on community council.” With over 80 people attending the event, Muir and Trinity were able to continue the longstanding tradition of holding fun, collaborative events together in order to foster friendship and
community between the two buildings. After being able to bring people together and raise money for such a meaningful organization, the community councils in Muir and Trinity anticipate a year of successful and enjoyable programming for their residents and the community as a whole.

HOW THE MUIRTIANS
Some of you may have heard about the brawl between the Redbricks this quarter- a fierce competition that involved all six halls in a battle of water and energy conservation for two week. The Annual Conversation and Diversion Challenge (ACDC) comes from the Green Campus team who works with University Housing to educate students about how they can reduce their energy and water consumption by making small changes to their daily behaviors. Students are encouraged to turn off the lights when they leave the room, take shorter showers, wash their clothes on the cold water setting, adjust the temperature setting on their mini-fridges, and get creative to come up with their own ways to save energy and water.
Yes, we know that all the Redbricks put up a good fight, but I am sure you are wondering, what were residents doing that won Muir the competition? Here are some of the creative ways they stayed ahead: ¿¿ Showering with the lights off ¿¿ Turning lights off in the hallways ¿¿ Unplugging room refrigerators
¿¿ Keeping the lights off in the Study Lounge until the evening ¿¿ Opening windows instead of using fans ¿¿ Using phones as flashlights
¿¿ Doing laundry with friends ¿¿ Charge electronics in other locations ¿¿ Filling water bottles and Brita filters in the UU
The prize? Bragging rights, eternal glory, saving the planet, and of course, an Ice Cream truck for all residents! And though the ACDC Competition has since ended, the conservation and diversion practices have continued in the Redbricks! Talk about learn by dowing!
IT’S NOT JUST A RES HALL TERM
in the Resident Handbook or talk to any Resident Advisor and one of those big words that we emphasize is the word “Community.” Terms like “Building inclusive communities”, “Community Standards”, and “Community Programs” are thrown around everywhere, but what does it really mean? The basic definition of a Community is a group of people who live together, but there is much more that goes into a good community than simply living together. Communities and societies should function based on respect, selflessness, and inclusivity.
outside of a Residence Hall. When students move off campus, get jobs, start families, have kids, and stuff we want them to be part of a great community. I know that when I was a student moving off campus I was thinking about these “Project X and Van Wilder” style parties and it took me a while to realize the impact I was having on those around me. This wasn’t just about noise, but it was about a bigger picture. What good was I actually doing in the world around me? Besides as I got older I started to prefer to be with a small group of friends than a huge group of randoms.
So what do the words Community Standards, Community Service, Community Council, and Community Programming have to do with this definition of a community? Simply put, these are all efforts to teach students the true meaning of how a Community should actually function
Too many people are busy trying to be part of their own world, rather than trying to be part of a better world. Whenever I’m feeling down about something, I always take the time to recognize that the world is bigger than me,
so what am I doing for the world?
