Check with your Resident Assistant and on SPIN for fun and educational activities.

What is programming?

Programming is simply the coordination and planning of an organized event or activity aimed at helping residents learn and grow. Resident Assistants (RAs) review the needs of their respective floors and buildings and plan an assortment of activities to enrich their lives. Have a fun idea? You are strongly encouraged to share it with your RA.

Explore events in your building and across campus here.

Program Board (PB) Each hall has a PB (similar to student council), which is a great opportunity for anyone to get involved. Your PB will plan social events for the hall. There are positions ranging from chairperson to green advocate, and meetings are held weekly. If you are looking to get involved contact your RA.

 

Residence Hall Association (RHA) is the primary interhall programming organization on campus. RHA provides opportunities to develop leadership skills through elected and appointed positions, as well as through attendance at state, regional and national conferences. RHA is active in developing campus-wide events and entertainment. This group also debates proposals and recommends policies and programs directly affecting the students who live in the halls.

 

National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH) is an organization that provides recognition for those individuals living in the residence halls who have demonstrated outstanding service to the on-campus community. The NRHH organization also exists to provide ways that student leaders can continue to develop other leaders on campus by giving support, training, and modeling of positive behaviors. Membership in local chapters is limited to one percent of the school’s residential population of 30 members, whichever is larger.

 

Labor of Love is a one-time commitment where first-year students and residence hall staff go into the Stevens Point community and provide service ranging from cleaning local parks, to assisting campus community neighbors.
Please click here for more information. 

 

Pointer Pals make up our welcoming crew for first-year students and students returning to campus! Pointer Pals assist with move-in day and help students carry belongings to their residence hall room. They will also lead our first-year students to Pointers Week events.
Applications for Pointer Pals open in April of every spring semester on the Housing and Residence Life SPIN page.

  • The Suites@201 has four private bedrooms in each apartment.

Alcohol-Free Living Communities

​”Alcohol-free” is defined as an area where neither residents nor their guests (regardless of age) are allowed to possess or consume alcohol.

  • In addition, residents and guests must refrain from being present on the floor with alcohol in their bodies. Residents will be required to sign a specialty living agreement upon arriving on campus.

All-Gender Restrooms

All-gender restrooms are located on the second floor in several halls and in the basements of all residence halls. These restrooms are available for use by all individuals. This restroom provides a facility option for those who may not identify with their assigned gender. The other restroom on the second floor will be labeled as the binary, male or female. Students who do not prefer to use this option will have the opportunity to travel up or down a floor to use a restroom facility with which they feel comfortable.

Quiet Communities

​All residence halls observe a basic set of quiet hours that are enforced Sunday-Thursday, 10 p.m. to 9 a.m., and Friday-Saturday, midnight to 9 a.m.

  • Quiet communities have slightly longer quiet hours: Sunday-Thursday, 9 p.m. to 10 a.m., and Friday-Saturday, 11 p.m. to 10 a.m.
    • If you are interested in living in a quiet community, select in the Specialty Living Options section Preferences. Residents assigned to a quiet community will be required to sign a specialty living agreement upon arriving on campus.
“Getting involved with my first year residence hall leadership team brought me lifelong friends and my job as a Resident Assistant for over two years. It’s extremely rewarding being able to make connections while being a part of something you’re passionate about.”
