College Councils

Each Residential College on the South 40 has a College Council. These Councils, composed of students from the Res. College, work to enhance the sense of community and pride in their Res. College  by organizing fun events and programs throughout the year. In working closely with their RCD (Residential College Director), they also act as a voice for student opinion to the administration. Being a part of a College Council is a great leadership experience, and can also be a stepping stone towards bigger roles such as CS40 Chair or Exec.

Though they operate independently within their Res. College, College Council members  still play a role in CS40 as a whole by participating on various committees led by Cs40 Chairs and Execs. More information on these committees can be found on the Boards + Committees Structure page.
