Rum-B-Que is our annual bar-b-que held during the first few weeks of semester in the fall. It’s a chance for the whole ResCollege to get together to celebrate getting through the first few weeks of classes.

Whale Waffles
About once a month the entire Res College gathers to enjoy delicious, freshly made waffles with delicious toppings! Keep an eye out for our first Whale Waffles! We often have prizes for the first to arrive.

Whale Week
A consolidation of efforts by both the College Council and Resident Advisors staff, Whale Week is a week-long extravaganza featuring a fun event every night of the week. Events last year included inflating a giant whale on the swamp, Trivia night, Whale Waffles, and more. The events change every year so look out for the schedule this Fall! No matter what night of the week, look forward to having fun with friends and eating a lot of delicious food

Setup UR Roommate Dance
The annual Setup UR Roommate Dance is a long-standing tradition in Umrath. The dance is a chance for residents of Umrath House and South 40 House to set their roommate up with a date. The dance is held on campus and features, music, food, and of course, dancing. Setup UR Roommate is planned and organized by College Council.
