Another goal for RSA is to improve residential life and to promote unity throughout the campus community. Some recent events include duck hunt, res-week, dodgeball, carnival, ice cream socials, campaigns for better food service at the college, increased safety for motor vehicles and parking area, review and update of Residence Hall Policies, sponsorship of marathons to raise money for charity, semi-formal dances, talent shows, trips to plays and sporting events and many other on-campus events.
