Residence Life staff visits sister Lasallian institution

As part of the annual hall director training, the professional staff in the Office of Residence Life went on retreat at Lasalle Manor in Plano, Ill., to focus on developing a vibrant residential experience for their residents and to immerse themselves in the work of student affairs at a Lasallian Catholic college.

To assist in this training, they visited Lewis University where they networked and shared insights into best practices with colleagues in residence life at Lewis. They toured the residence halls and had a training session with the Office of Residence Life staff at Lewis, discussing residence life at Lasallian colleges and universities. The SMSU Residence Life staff hopes to offer the same opportunity to their Lewis colleagues.
