Holiday Party Pictures!

And the winner is...

Friday Trivia is over for the week.

There are indeed 10 ovens in Ytterboe. Two on each floor (ground - 3rd), one in the main lounge kitchen and one in AC Laura's apartment.

Congrats to Francine Boylan, Abby Kirchman, Brett Morris, Chelsea Ray and Rie Uchida for getting the answer correct. Those five names were put on slips of paper and the winner was drawn out of a cup...

BRETT MORRIS is the winner of the TEN Totino's Party Pizzas for his corridor! That is going to be one impressive corridor event.

Friday Trivia for December 11

It's time for Friday Trivia once again!

The rules are changing a bit this week. I will collect the names of the first FIVE people who put the correct answer in the comment box (not via email - the answer must be in the comment section of the blog entry) and I'll draw a winner from that group. Everyone is eligible - student staff, hall council members, random blog readers... anyone!

The question is.....

How many OVENS are there in Ytterboe Hall?

This time the prize is 10 (that's right, TEN) Totino's Party Pizzas to share with your floor/corridor and friends and neighbors. And you have to use an OVEN to make them (but not necessarily in Ytterboe).

Hall Council Programming Awards for November!

The Residence Life office is now recognizing outstanding Hall Council programs! Our 10 Hall Councils put a lot of energy and effort into their programs each month and we decided it was time that we start recognizing what they do a little more formally.

We've created three awards that will be given each month. The first is "The People's Choice Award," which will be given to a program that has a high level of participation. The "Creativity Award" goes to the program that tries something new or different to get people to show up and participate. Finally, the "Program of the Month" award is for the best all-around program.

There were a lot of really good events in November - the choices were difficult! Congratulations to the following Hall Councils for their great programs in November...

"The People's Choice Award" goes to the Mellby Hall Council for the "Mellby Murder Mystery" featuring Captain Lunch. About 120 people were in attendance throughout the night.

"Creative Program of the Month" goes to the Rand Hall Council for their make-your-own dessert pizza event that coincided with the RA's "de-stressor" event.

"Program of the Month" goes to the Kildahl Hall Council for their "Kildahl Kabaret," a talent show for residents. The program was well-received, well-planned and well-organized.

Thanks to all of the councils for their hard work in November!
