Community Living: Getting Students to Care about Each Other

by Katie LaSota

This semester has started out with a surprising amount of roommate, bathroom and community space issues. While dealing with roommate issues has some different processes per institution, I am struggling with how to teach my residents respect for community space. With that said, I am seeking out ways to handle this problem. It might be important to note that my hall consists of all women. 

Here are the specific issues:

  • Kitchens: Residents are taking food from the refrigerator that does not belong to them.
  • Bathrooms: Residents are leaving personal products, toilet paper and paper towels on the floor. 
  • Common spaces: PIZZA BOXES… These get left every weekend. I have been using recipes to contact residents, but am looking for other strategies that are more preemptive.

Please help!
