The spring semester for the Resident Student Association (RSA) looks full with many events lined up, and old members leaving and new members coming in.

Former President Jeremey Hill stepped down this semester due to personal reasons, and new president Wyatt Berezansky is taking over the position. Other spots of the board are taken over by new people with the former members stepping down.

Jennifer Grulke, Coordinator for Leadership and Administration with the Office of Residence Life, is looking forward to working with the new recruits.

“I am excited for the new members and I hope they succeed our former members just as well,” Grulke said.

Future plans for the semester, she said, include having Dr. Nick Henneseey come to speak about Recyclemania and “When You Move Out, Don’t Throw It Out” (WYMO), one of the University’s community service projects. Dr Josh Lawrie will also be coming to discuss the housing signup process. Additionally, Vice President of Administration and Finance Emily Baker said President Mazey and Provost Rogers will be visting RSA on their listening tour.

Baker outlined several other events coming up this semester.

“We have the Sibs N Kids Carnival, and collaboration with our honorary organization, the National Resident Hall Honorary on their leadership conference,” Baker said in an e-mail.

She said one of the goals this year, like any other year, is to provide a welcoming and engaging environment in each residence hall.

“Bowling Green State University really becomes a home away from home while students are here and the residence hall community has a huge influence on that,” Baker said.

Vice President of Programming T’Shawn Sanders said they have a new program, Cornerstone Project, already in the works, thanks to last year’s executive board that will provide residents with additional provided information about their hall.

“Each residence hall is unique in its own way and these plaques will demonstrate the importance and unique way that each hall possess to current and future residents,” Sanders said.

There are a few requirements students must meet to be a part of RSA including living on campus for one year and being enrolled for one semester. Those interested can find the application and other information through orgsync.
