Leadership within the Halls... FSL Housing Representatives



Each fraternity and sorority living in Lafayette has a Fraternity and Sorority Life Housing Representative. This individual is responsible for communication/programming/inquiries between his/her chapter and Lafayette Residential Hall. Housing Representatives meet together bi-weekly and work together as a committee to discuss programming initiatives, collaboration opportunities, Lafayette updates/announcements, and other items that may come up within the community.

Each Housing Representative is responsible for programming which can consist of creating two tabling events and one large program. The theme of these events can be of their choosing, however, it is typically based of the organizations national philanthropy, or an initiative brought forward through the Hall Council of Lafayette Hall. The purpose of these events is to create a welcoming environment that unites the entire Lafayette community through community building activities.Every program offers something new and unique to the Lafayette community and has been a long-standing tradition for our Lafayette Living Learning communities.
