All Hall Brawl is almost upon us and with it unity and fellowship follow amongst the Santa Catalina South Tower Residents. All Hall Brawl is a program in which all of the Residence Halls come together under the Thunderdome and duke it out to prove once and for all which Hall is the best! In other words, it is the same as the rallies we all had in high school. Where the classes were pitted against each other but now it’s our respective halls. San Cat South is ready and geared up for the up and coming battle. Just to name a few of our gear: shirts, temporary tattoos, face paint, and much more! We made sure to make the shirts only $5 so that every resident could have the chance to buy one and wear it for All Hall Brawl. The competition isn’t the only thing to look forward to at the Brawl. There is also going to be Raffle Prizes like a 40” Flat Screen TV, PS3, Beats Pill, and iPad Mini! I mean, come on! Those are some awesome prizes and if you go to All Hall Brawl your chances of winning increases to about 100%! If that’s not enough to entice people to come, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, did I mention it’s going to be super fun and you will not regret going and this is a once in a lifetime (more like once a year) chance to experience something like this? I hope to see you all there!
Just wanted to fill everyone in on a project I have going on at Santa Catalina South. Our hall council is working on creating a textbook library for the residence hall so students would not need to bike back to Davidson Library to access the course reserves. I am hoping to get a cabinet full of textbooks, particularly the ones most popular for freshman, like Anthropology 2, Greek Mythology, Psychology 1, etc. These textbooks would be loaned out for short periods of time to students, allowing residents to share these textbooks and also save them a huge amount of money that textbooks, even the rentals, cost us. Additionally, this project would also help the environment by saving paper from the multitude of individual textbooks students would be using if they had not been able to share the same. To me this project represents more than a just a cash saving project, but a way for every resident not only to help themselves, but to take all the resources they used to learn and thrive in class and then pass them along to the future generations of students who will live in Santa Catalina.
If anyone is interested in helping with this project or donating their books, feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org! We’re always open to donations of any books in any condition. We will be holding a raffle for everyone who donates a book, the more books you donate the more entries into the raffle you receive.
Yours til the art works,
Co-President of Santa Catalina South Residence Hall
