Earlier this month, the 4th floor resident assistants of Read, Landes and Curry came together to plan a speed-dating event for their residents. Over 40 guys and girls came to get to know the people on their floors.
The RA’s set up two rows, one for the guys and one for the girls. As all the people filled into the room, soothing and smooth music played in the background.
Each couple was given four minutes to get to know one another; to get to know their background, interests, and personalities. After those four minutes were up, the guys said their goodbyes and got up to move down to the next girl.
One full rotation was made so that all the guys were able to meet all the girls.
Because this event took place after the first couple of weeks into the semester, many people didn’t know their other floor mates; this event encouraged both the guys and the girl’s floor to really bond.
