Resident Assistant Bailey Walter hosted an outdoor event for resident students on campus earlier this month, part of a push from the Residence Life office to help students get comfortable on campus.
“My goal for this event was to kick off the new school year by bringing everyone back together,” Walter said.
The event took place in the Residence Quad where a variety of yard games and activities were available for the students. Corn hole, Kan-jam, and volleyball were some of the main activities.
Tyshawn Jones, a student who attended the event, said he couldn’t stay for long, but playing games and seeing people back together on campus was very enjoyable.
“This event felt like a breath of fresh air,” Jones said. “It felt good to see our Hilbert community coming together and having fun. After the last year, it was a reminder that things will eventually get back to normal and I’m looking forward to things on campus.”
There are many events planned for this upcoming semester and students are encouraged to check Hilbert’s social media accounts to stay in the loop.
“Residents should look forward to a lot of fun memory-making programs this semester,” Walter said.
Student Activities is always encouraging students to bring new ideas to the table on what they’d like to see on campus.
“I would also recommend getting involved with Student Government Association so if there is anything you’d like to see on campus, you can voice the ideas,” Walter said.
