Residential Leaders

Each floor has a designated Residential Leader (RL) – a senior student who lives in the College. The RLs are there to facilitate social activities on your floor, to help you adjust to communal life, and help you with your study or personal problems. They are your big brothers and sisters who are always available for advice or just a friendly chat.
