Marx House in Suites will become the new entrepreneurship-themed “eDorm” starting in the 2012-13 academic year, as a result of collaboration between E2.0–a student group focused on providing help and services for entrepreneurial students–and Residential Education (ResEd), along with other administrators.
The ASSU has offered to subsidize residence-financed trips to Saturday’s football game at the University of Southern California (USC) last weekend. Students’ whose trips, which were individually organized, or not officially financed by residences, are not eligible for ASSU sponsorship.
Suites residents reached an agreement with the University that they will be allowed to manage their own dining areas and chefs for the upcoming academic year, ending a months-long conflict between Suites Dining, formally known as the Governor’s Corner Dining Societies and Residential Education (ResEd), according to Nate Boswell, associate dean of Residential Education, in an email to The Daily.
Stanford Residential Education says its mission is to “extend the classroom into the residences and complement the academic curriculum with activities and experiences essential to students’ preparation for a life of leadership, intellectual engagement, citizenship and service.” As residents of Suites this year and members of the Suites Dining Societies, we have been beneficiaries of this ideal in action.
Tuesday night’s in-house draw for Suites residences was the first with a “partial fill” option, which resulted in confusion for many residents and residential staff during the three-and-a-half hour room assignment process.
