Greetings Colleagues from Housing & Residence Life!
The Department of Housing and Residence Life at Seton Hall University
would like to extend an invitation to all administration, faculty, and
staff to participate in the 9th Annual "Residence Hall House Calls".
This initiative began as a means to connect our new students with
members of the Seton Hall community. We have found that the first-year
student population feel more invested in the University when they become
acquainted with various individuals who help make SHU a strong
This is why HRL invites any and all Seton Hall faculty, staff and
administrators into the Residence Halls to go door to door to talk to
our first year students, see how they are adjusting to life on campus,
and answer any questions they might have on their minds. It is a
wonderful program and a few minutes of conversation can make a
difference in the experience of our first-year student population. Our
hope is for Seton Hall students to gain an understanding about the
resources they have available to them, the personnel around to assist
them, and that they are not alone in their four-year experience at the
As a faculty member, administrator or staff member we know that
students are the most important people to Seton Hall; they are the
purpose of our work and a chief component of the servant leadership that
we emphasize and practice. The Residence Hall House Calls program is a
small way to show our students that they are valued at Seton Hall and
assists them in their transition
to college life.
We invite you to help us make the 9th Annual Residence Hall House
Calls Program a success! The date of the Residence Hall House Calls
will be Wednesday, September 25, 2013. The training for the event will
take place over dinner at 6 p.m. in the University Club and the House
Calls will begin in Aquinas, Boland, Neumann and on the Sophomore
Discovery Program floor in Xavier Hall at around 7:30 p.m. Each faculty,
staff or administrator will be assigned to a particular floor and will
have about 30 doors to knock on together. As a participant in this
rewarding event, you will receive a free gift and our thanks for your
time and effort!
If interested please e-mail Residence Coordinator Brian O'Malley by Monday, September 23, 2013 at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive a confirmation e-mail and more specific details a few days before the event.
If there are other faculty, staff members, or administrators that you
know whom you would like to be paired with that evening, please
indicate so in your e-mail. Both individuals must request one another to
be paired up for the House Calls program.
Thank you for considering taking part in this year's Residence Hall House Calls!
