Residence Life Programs and Events


Did you know that Residence Life puts on over 120 programs a year? Find out more here!

Resident Assistants organize and host a variety of programs throughout the academic year so that the residence halls are a lively, educational, and fun-living learning community.


NOTE: These programs are for Residents ONLY.

Leading and Educating through Authentic Programming (The LEAP Model) For our programming efforts in residence life at Mount St. Mary’s College we developed a model based upon the common transitions and needs our resident student population goes through while living in our residential communities. The Resident Assistants in the halls focus on six specific areas for programs during the academic year to assist the students in their “out of the classroom” development, learn more concrete skills, adjust to living in a community, build relationships and be respectful, civil contributors to their neighbor, the greater society and the world.


Athenian Cafe for all students (commuters and residents)

Athenian Cafes typically take place at least once to twice a month in the Cafeteria.  We have free drinks, pastries, and crafts for all students (residents and commuters) who attend.  We always have a craft for you to make and take home as well as board games, and the Nintendo Wii.  Each Athenian Cafe has its own theme for residents to enjoy such as Hawaiian, Carnival, and Old School Games! We have plenty of activities for you to enjoy!

Movie Nights for all residents

Movie Nights typically take place in the Hannon 1st Lounge (Doheny) and Brady 1st Lounge (Chalon). We have free crafts and snacks for all residents to enjoy while we play your favorite movies.



We have floor meetings at least once a month. This is a time when Resident Assistants share important information from Residence Life and other departments to the residents. It is important that residents attend the floor meetings. The first and last floor meeting for each semester are mandatory for all residents. Residents who do not attend the mandatory meetings will be charged a fee. 




During your floor meetings, you will have the opportunity to give your input on what kinds of programs you'd like to see in the residence halls. Feel free to throw out any creative ideas you have. We want to make sure you're having a great time living in the residence halls. You can also e-mail as with all your wonderful suggestions at the following e-mails: or
