00:00:00.000 Basically it was the council that overlooked dorm life,
00:00:04.888 or I don't think we're supposed to call it dorm, student housing or whatever the proper term was,
00:00:11.584 but basically if there was an issue, say
00:00:17.537 something as serious as if there's something wrong with a particular building that needed to be addressed,
00:00:22.899 even something as fun as making sure the common areas had a new big screen TV.
00:00:28.586 We would host different get-togethers on different parts of the campus so the students on campus would have different events to attend.
00:00:37.004 One of my favorite things, actually one of my favorite events that we ever did,
00:00:41.198 was a block party right in front of the student center.
00:00:44.818 That was one of the first things actually myself and Darryl Willie, who was president I believe two years after I was,
00:00:52.661 we put it together and it was so fun to put something like that together because we made little cheesy flyers
00:01:00.471 and we went out and we told everybody we were going to have Kool-Aid at this block party.
00:01:06.572 We got food donated by the dining hall, of all places, and people showed up. We had a DJ.
00:01:15.721 I think five hundred people showed up and it was all because Darryl and I went around passing out these cheesy little flyers,
00:01:20.819 and it ended up being a lot of fun, so a lot of different things that we did in Inter-Residence Council.
