On Oct. 28 the Sterling College dormitories hosted a bonfire where students made s’mores and spent time together.

The event was not sponsored by a specific campus organization. Instead, the resident assistants and residence hall directors came together to host the experience.

Brett Couture, RD for Douglas Hall, was one of the people who set up the event for the residents.

“This is the coldest day of the entire year thus far, so we would like to provide a safe environment for Douglas residents,” he said. “They’ll be able to just have some fun and eat s’mores and to hang out with some friends; also to get to make new friends.”

Zoe Oppriecht, RA for the Douglas Women’s Hall, said making connections was a main driver for the formation of the event.

“I just want to get to know my residents,” she said. “I think that as an RA, one important thing is building a relationship, and events like this give them that opportunity. I think this was a time for our residents to just come get some food and make some new friends.”
