#Rezlife (Daniela)

Hey everybody!

So us lucky university students had our only break of the semester this past week. Yes, it was the much anticipated reading week, where some people like myself try (and fail) to get ahead on school work. It’s a good chance to catch up with friends and family and maybe do some coveted winter sports. But alas, that week comes and goes in a blink of an eye and I am already back to my home-away-from home: Moulton Hall.

Despite being in second year, I am in residence again, and having spent two years on campus, I have some good insights into residence life. At Mac, there are many different residence options and themes. There’s your standard dorm style, with a range of 1 to 4 occupants, suite or apartment style. Then you have to throw in themes like all-female, international, substance-free, etc. I’ve lived in a double and single room, each offering their pros and cons. Double is great because you have someone to watch movies and hang with all the time, and single is sometimes nice because you get that “me” time.

A very essential tool for any student living on campus is the meal card. You ID card, which doubles as the magical swipe card for purchasing food, is your key to sustenance. I was blown away by all the options on campus when I first arrived. Eventually, I stumbled upon the buffalo chicken wrap which I ate way too many times. Not going to lie, the food does get a little tiring, and if you let it, the Freshmen 15 will happen. It’s not a myth.

Rez is great for two main reasons:

1) Convenience. You’re a stumble out of bed away from class.

2) Opportunity. Residence gives you a whole other community outside your faculty to be a part of, with leadership positions even in first year with the Inter-Residence Council. Then later on, there’s a chance for Community Advisor or Residence Welcome Week Rep.
