The nonres app is live!

Nonreses:
     1. Members of a residential college who don't live in the college.
     2. Some of the most valuable people in the RC system.

Frequently:
     underclassmen who want to join the community, go to events and possibly move in the next year
          -and-
     former members of the college who want to go to events, and have a home base on campus.

Become a nonres today!

Visit the Hall of Fame 

The Res Colleges celebrated Green Cup by putting together works of art composed of recyclable materials. Chapin's "Slaughter" won best in show for its powerful message and impeccable construction. Shepard's "Life, Together" won Most Informative for its enlightening flyer about recycling in Evanston (references included!), and Slivka won Most Creative for its dismembered "Slivkoctopus." Honorable mentions go out to ISRC, Jones, and Willard.
