An update from Andrew, a member of the Residential Commons Leadership Corps and a first-year majoring in Anthropology and Human Rights:

Spring has sprung at SMU! With midterms out of the way, and less than two months remaining in the semester, its time to start thinking about housing for next year. Fall 2014 will mark a new era in Mustang history with the implementation of the Residential Commons.

To help with the transition, the RCLC held an expo in Hughes-Trigg recently. From 3 to 7 p.m., students came by to learn about each Commons and consider where they might want to live next year. Many wonderful Residential Commons Directors and Faculty-in-Residence members made appearances at the expo to promote their Commons. The RCLC members enjoyed displaying the informational posters they prepared for the occasion. The expo was an exciting affair, complete with Butter Beer and pretzel wands inspired by Harry Potter.

In case you missed the expo, here are some photos from the event:
