Nonreses:

     2. Some of the most valuable people in the RC system.

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

RCB Field Day Champions
Ayers CCI


Visit the Hall of Fame

CCI vaulted into first place, winning three categories and earning second place in one category. Chapin's exciting performances in the water balloon toss, relay race, master's mile, and tug of war earned it second place, while CCI's rival Slivka consistently placed third in almost all categories, garnering a bronze overall.


PARC's ravenous warriors earned a gold in the eating contest, while Hobart's entertaining master's mile and upbeat nature earned it the title of Best Spirit. ISRC, CCS, and CRC also medaled in Field Day events.
