Meet Your RCC Cookout
Home Away from Home Week
Unique to Elizabeth College, this event is designed to help new and returning students feel like the College is their second home. The week is filled with game nights, recreational events, free food, movies, and more. The event is traditionally held the second week of the semester. Watch for postings on Elizabeth social media, around Elizabeth Hall, or your student email for more information.
Life Raft Debate
Started in the Spring of 2017, our Life Raft Debate is definitely one of our favorite programs. The premise is this: the world is ending, and there will be but one life raft that saves humanity. There is ONE spot left on the life raft, and students in attendance are charged with choosing the major/field of study that is most deserving of this final spot. Faculty members from Elizabeth College (and even other colleges occasionally) will come in to make their pitch of why their field of study should be given the final seat on the raft. This program is great for both faculty involvement and student education!
NEW THIS YEAR! Each year co-ed service fraternity of Elizabeth College Lambda Zeta Omicron (LZO) teams up with the Residential College Council to put on a large-scale fundraiser for LZO's chosen charity. This year, LZO will be raising funds for Doctors Without Borders. While we are still trying to solidify the specifics, we know that we will be holding a Trivia Night on Monday, September 18th! Check back closer to time for more information.
This program promotes collaboration among the floors and engages many of the international students in the Murray State community. Each floor is designated with a type of food to bring in a potluck style meal. Residents sharing a floor can cook their dishes together in the lobby kitchen! While there are often several domestic dishes, many international students create dishes from their home country.
This program celebrates all of the accomplishments of Elizabeth College. Traditionally, a specified amount of students can sign up for free on a first come, first serve basis. At this reception, students are awarded their annual superlatives (Best Funky Monkeys, Most Studious, etc.), the incoming RCC and Honors Society members are recognized, and the Athletic Directors and LZO give out awards. The program includes reflections from the College Head and Residence Director.
Faculty Dessert Reception
In Elizabeth College, we love our faculty members! This new event, started in 2016, is designed to connect students with the Elizabeth College faculty members and to recognize the importance that faculty members play in the Residential College system.
Faculty/Staff Birthday Cards
Our Elizabeth College RCC feels that it was important to recognize college faculty and staff members for their contributions to the campus community. To do so, the judicial board collaborates with RCC to deliver birthday cards to all of the college's faculty and staff. These birthday cards are always a hit with our faculty members, and we love getting the opportunity to recognize each of them!
Elizabeth College strives to create relationships, to encourage, engage, and enhance the residents, commuters, faculty, and staff members of Elizabeth College. Through care, we seek leadership principles and communication strategies that are applied by each individual as frequently as possible. Students will learn that the college atmosphere is positive, respectful, and creates value while retaining and educating the members within.
