Today, Moriba Cummings, Brandon Anderson, and I hosted a Robert Hall Informational, an event that should be hosted yearly.
During my time as a RA in Robert, I noticed two things: 1. Many people have misconstrued opinions and thoughts about Robert Hall and 2. The Robert Hall experience is a exclusive experience, which needs to be showcased. Tonight’s meeting answered all of the aforementioned thoughts.
With the help of Mr. Tweedle, we explained the Avant Garde community to the cadre of students and how we expect them to be Avant Garde/Out of the Box Leaders and transcend leadership to the next level. In addition, we told them about the Avant Garde application process, the building’s history, social interactions with other residents, and any other information that they wanted to know.
What made tonight special was hearing several of my former residents speak about their time at Robert and how it has fostered their growth both academically and personally. I’m glad to know that the Avant Garde learning community had such an impact during my leadership.
The informational culminated with a tour of the building, including the bathrooms and some resident’s rooms. Overall, tonight was a great experience and demonstrated that the Avant Garde application process will be highly competitive!
