What Rez Life Position Should You Apply For? (2017 Edition)

You got: Faculty in Residence

You’re in for a lot of elbow-rubbing with McGill big-wigs, and a lot of eating leftover cheese platters. As Faculty in Residence, you email a lot of professors and notable McGill people to come into to Rez for cozy and inspiring chats. You care a lot about representation so that means: profs from a variety of faculties, female professors, and professors who are People of Colour. VP Internal and VP Comms of residence councils are your pals in helping you figure out what profs students are interested in, and promoting events! You balance serious, sweet, and fun! Being welcoming & warm to professors and students, while also showing your poise and responsibility (this also comes in handy with writing emails). You help Rez Life put on more chill events to help appeal to all members of our community! Talk to Daniil Lisus during his office hours (Tuesday & Thursday 9:30-11:30) to find out more about the position!

You got: IRC Advisors

You were born to be a part of a DYNAMIC DUO! Although you're part of the whole Rez Life team, you will most likely end up spending a lot of time with your co-advisor (a.k.a. your new BFF). This position requires conflict management, foresight, and the ability to offer resources and resolutions! You also will commit a solid 3 weeks at the beginning of the year to ensure people join councils and then planning a 2-day Council-Orientation to train those new councils (don't worry your team is here to support you for both of these, too!). AND FOLLOWING THAT, you and your partner have the honour and privilege of co-advising the IRC (Inter-Residence Council) -- holding weekly meetings and providing institutional memory and sagely advice to help run smoother events. Democracy, the electoral process, representation, and supporting others is important to you! Talk to Jennifer Chan or Anoosh Poorian during their office hours (Jenn: Tuesday 12-2, Anoosh: Wednesday 2-4, Jenn & Anoosh: Friday 2-4) to find out more about the position!

You got: CEEC Advisor

Oh snap! As the Community Equity and Engagement Committee (CEEC) Advisor, you host inclusive and social justice events throughout the year with the help of your marvelous CEEC team made up of passionate students in Residence. You’re all about positive change and calling out injustices within Residence, McGill, and the community at large. Addressing and raising awareness about inequities and systemic oppression in residence, you work with groups on and off campus to make our spaces more inclusive and safe for all folks. Apart from equity, you’re all about engagement! That means exploring the best of Montreal and bringing those experiences to first-year students! It’s truly a magical time! Talk to Inori Roy during her office hours (Tuesday & Thursday 3:30-5:30) to find out more about the position!

You got: Wellness

Oh boy! You just got SELF CARED! Welcome to wellness! You like therapy dogs and making sure people are living their best life possible during their time in residence, and hopefully beyond! You're a new position, so you get to play with it and make it your own! You also get a lot of freedom when it come to to the kinds of events you want to host. A pizza workshop? Want to pot some plants? Pet some dogs? Make some art? Do a little Dance? The sky is your oyster and the world is the limit or whatever that saying is... You are versatile, a veritable Jack-of-all-trades and don't enjoy being placed in a box. You can plan a fun high-energy event like RezWarz but you also know the appeal of a more laid back event complete with plenty of snacks à la Faculty in Rez. If Wellness had a mascot ya darn tootin' it would be a chameleon! You believe in freedom of expression and value creating lots of different spaces where various people can be free to be themselves. You love trying new things and aren't afraid to experiment or think outside of the box. No one knows what to expect from you, but they know that they can always expect to be pleasantly surprised by whatever it is that you have up your sleeve. Your goal is to try and help improve the mental and physical wellness of residence students which to some may seem an impossible task, but you know that nothing good ever came easy and that some causes are worth the effort! Talk to Caitlin Mehrotra during her office hours (Tuesday 10-12 & Thursday 11-1) to find out more about the position!

You got: Rez Warz

Your main goal is to make people happy and build community. You can’t resist a good cheer, or a moment to run around and act a like a kid (which is a great boost for endorphins!! 10/10 suggest!) Although this community building involves friendly competition, it is still a beautiful ode to the supportive and kind residence community we have here at McGill. Watching a residence welcome players from other residences to their team, whether it be for kickball or Iron Chef, because they didn’t have enough people is truly a magical thing to experience. You love awarding teams Posi-Points for these kinds of actions because it just goes to prove that the real winners at the end of the day are the ones who positively engaged with their community! You’re not afraid to dance in front of or speak to large crowds -- in fact it may even ~FUEL~ you. You gotta be on top of booking spaces, or get creative & thrifty with NEW spaces. You also have the honour of being able to decide what Rez Warz events to hold -- liaising with spirit reps to stay in tuned with what residents want, and to help promote events are key! What fun! Rez Warz is Love! Rez Warz is Life! Talk to Corinne Bulger during her office hours (Monday & Wednesday 10-12) to find out more about the position!
