Hack-a-thon: A Hack-a-thon is an opportunity to come together as a group and dismantle a problem. There is a limit of time and the group's goal is to look at all angles of an issue to craft a new solution or method of how to approach. We will invite ideas from RA participants via registration. There will be several rooms going with different topics. This could include incorporating social justice into the halls, creating more inclusive spaces, engaging disengaged students, connecting halls with the community, etc.

Shine + Share: RAs will have an opportunity to set up at a table and share an area they are at their best. They can bring a laptop to help display what they do well or bring those items. This could include how they make door decs, exceptional handlettering, their method for organizing RA life, etc. RA participants will be invited to walk through and talk for as long or as little at the various tables. The goal is to mix and mingle. Snacks will be provided.
