Are you ready for the New Year?

Are you ready for the New Year? The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College is! Next year will be a fun packed year filled with wonderful activities for the residents. According to RHBC Staff, there will be more diverse events ranging from group trips, to charity concerts, play ensembles and much more! Also, for the first time since construction, students will have the opportunity to suggest events that will be sponsored by RHBC Management if approved! One resident that went home for the Holiday season stated that he can't wait to return for the spring semester. With just a few days left in the year 2012, the countdown for the new semester has officially begun. Join us as we count down on and add The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College.

From the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College

As the semester draws to an end, final examinations approach. Thus, many residents have began to utilize the Quiet Study Room & private lounges for the purpose of exam preparation. Last Week Monday, the RA's organized a Finals Exam Preparation event in which residents received personal tutoring services from Brooklyn College Librarian Matthew Harrick. On Thursday, RHBC Staff provided free  to students during our Winter Movie Night. The overall consensus of the week’s events was an attitude of appreciation, as many residents needed a study boost while simultaneously engaging in stress relieving activity. Judging by the increase in study habits, we expect our residents to do exceptionally well on their exams and wish them the best of luck!

Whats Happening This Week?

                                                               Whats Happening This Week?
The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College is gearing up for our first Fright Fest Costume Party! The event will be going down this coming Thursday at 7pm in the main lounge. Participants will have an opportunity to earn a prize for the best costume as well as for the best decorated door. RHBC Management will be sponsoring the event and providing free candy, beverages, and music for the residents to enjoy.
What to expect in the Future?
The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College will be having our first Ladies vs Gents cook out event. The event is set to take place in the middle of November, before the Thanks Giving Recess. We expect this cook out to be a good competition, as many of our residents have received a lot of practice over the past 2 months. Our residents take advantage of the full size kitchen located in the Main Lounge, and have been consistently preparing meals since their first night. We are currently in the process of looking for a local charity to donate the food prepared during the cook out.

Events @ The Residence Hall

The Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College held our first scary movie night last week Thursday. Many students showed up and received free pop corn and beverages. Students were given the opportunity to select one of three horror movies to view [Ju-on The Grudge, Insidious, Saw]. The students chose to watch Insidious because they heard that it was a good horror movie. Judging by the attendance at the end of the movie, I am guessing that the movie certainly lives up to its reputation.
The scary movie night was a part of the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College's ongoing weekly events. We have successfully staged an event every week since the beginning of the semester. So far, we have had 2 movie nights, a self defense night & an open mic night. All of our events are supported by the students that reside in the residence hall as well as students from multiple campuses in New York.

In staging the events we discovered something unique about our building. Every semester we always end up with a handful of [very] talented students.  I am certain that one day soon, someone from our building will become a star. There is so much potential here that it is most likely inevitable. What is even more impressive is that the students manage to keep a balanced ratio between school and leisure. Residents who maintain such a balance generally attain a level of maturity associated with living away from home. We try to be as mindful of this balance as possible and reinforce positive aspects of each.

New Air Hockey Table for the Residents!

The Increasing Trend of Residence Hall Living

Residence halls have a lot of advantages over other college living arrangements. As a result, in greater and greater numbers annually, even students who live near their campuses to begin with are opting for the kind of lifestyle which life in a residence hall offers. Students can learn a lot simply from living that kind of lifestyle. After all, not everything one learns during his or her college years is taught to him by his or her professors. For the next few moments, we invite you to join us as we explore life in residence halls in a little bit more detail.

We mentioned a moment ago that some of what you learn during your college years doesn't come from books or your professors. Where it does come from is the sense of community you can develop during this period. It's much more difficult, if not impossible, to develop that sense of community when you're either living by yourself or with your parents. One of the ways that living in a residence hall creates a sense of community is by offering things like communal kitchen spaces and lounges. Interacting with other students on such a regular basis can improve your interpersonal skills as well as allow you to meet new people.

One of the best things about living in a residence hall to begin with is its affordability. In fact, when you factor in your rent and utilities, it's definitely a lot more affordable than living in your own apartment, even if you have a roommate. When it comes to living in a residence hall,  “utilities” include things like cable television and wi-fi internet access, in addition to heat and air conditioning. You also get to avoid the danger of being evicted just because your roommate can't (or won't) pay his or her fair share of the bills. In a residence hall, each resident has his or her own individual bills, and their continued residence in the hall isn't contingent upon anyone else's success or failure when it comes to meeting those obligations.

Residence halls employ on-site directors, and those directors are on-site twenty-four hours a day, because they live there. That way, in the rare event that there is a problem, you'll always have someone you can go to about it. In addition to that, you also have resident assistants on every floor. Furthermore, there is a security guard in the lobby at all times. After hours, that security guard buzzes residents into the building, so that no one can get in that isn’t supposed to be there. This prevents most problems from happening in the first place.

Surely by now you can see why we're so enthusiastic about life inside of residence halls. It's the very best college living arrangement imaginable. By taking advantage of it, you get the safety of home, the independence of an apartment, and the community of a dorm. It takes the best features of all of these living arrangements and combines them into one incredible experience.

Residence Hall Extravaganza

The End of Semester Extravaganza held at the Residence Hall on Tuesday was a huge success, with over 250 students and guests celebrating the end of the semester with pizza, soft drinks and snacks, courtesy of Residence Hall.

Many students saw an opportunity to visit the Residence Hall for the first time and to learn about the many amenities offered to residents on site.

The highlight of the event was a raffle, held at the conclusion of the extravaganza by Ben Negrin, Director of leasing for Residence Hall, with a new iPad and iTunes gift cards among the prizes awarded to the excited winners.

Thank you to everyone who attended and made the event a great success!! We look forward to seeing you at our next party!

The Best Details of Residence Hall Living

While there are plenty of options when it comes to where you're going to live while you're going to college, we believe the best choice you could possibly make is to live in a residence hall. If you're going to be attending Brooklyn College, then it's probably no surprise to you that we believe your best option is the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College. One of the reasons we have for that belief is all the amenities you'll enjoy as a resident here. We're going to take a look at some of those perks in this article. In the end, we think you'll agree that those amenities add up to a mountain of great reasons to live with us.

Some of the perks of living at the Residence Hall are actually outside of the building itself. One of them is the fact that there are security cameras positioned around the perimeter of the building. Along with the security measures we take inside the building itself, these help to create a situation where you can feel just as safe as you would in your home. Another perk of life here that exists outside the building is our courtesy shuttle to Brooklyn College.

Let's step inside the building. The amenities associated with life at Residence Hall exist both  inside the rooms themselves, as well as in the rest of the building. Inside the rooms themselves, one of the best perks is that all your utilities are included in your license fee! That includes your cable television and wireless high speed internet access. You'll also appreciate the fact that your rooms are fully furnished as soon as you move in. You'll have the option of private or shared bathrooms, and there are kitchenettes in every unit. You even get individually controlled air conditioning and heat!

Let's take a look at the rest of the building. For starters, we should mention that there's a security guard in the lobby twenty-four hours a day. After four in the afternoon, you'll have to show your building identification to get buzzed in. That way, you can rest easy, knowing that the only people that are in the building are people that are supposed to be there. Of course, you can have guests, you just have to let the office know in advance. Also, there are study areas, fitness rooms, and lounges available for your use, as well as on site laundry facilities. You get all the comforts of home... and more!

Not only will you be experiencing all the comforts of home, but as you've seen, you'll be experiencing additional safety. What's more, you'll be saving yourself some money as well! About the only more economical option would be to stay with some relatives who live near the campus. Of course, if you want to experience the sense of community that's such a memorable part of so many people's college years, then we invite you to come and join us at the Residence Hall @ Brooklyn College.
