Meet Your RCC Cookout
At the beginning of the Fall semester, during Great Beginnings, Elizabeth College students get the chance to meet up with residential college leaders and enjoy some delicious food, grilled up by Residential College Council members. Vegetarian options are available. Watch your Great Beginnings Schedule for date and time.
Home Away from Home Week
Unique to Elizabeth College, this event is designed to help new and returning students feel like the College is their second home. The week is filled with game nights, recreational events, free food, movies, and more. The event is traditionally held the second week of the semester. Watch for postings on Elizabeth social media, around Elizabeth Hall, or your student email for more information.
Charitable Date Auction
Each year co-ed service fraternity of Elizabeth College Lambda Zeta Omicron teams up with the Residential College Council to bring the charitable date auction. Members of the College leadership team are auctioned off for a spaghetti dinner. The following week, the College hosts the date for all the winners, who are treated to a spaghetti dinner within the lobby of the hall. Proceeds go toward LZO's annually chosen philanthropy.
This program promotes collaboration among the floors and engages many of the international students in the Murray State community. Each floor is designated with a type of food to bring in a potluck style meal. Residents sharing a floor can cook their dishes together in the lobby kitchen! While there are often several domestic dishes, many international students create dishes from their home country.
This program celebrates all of the accomplishments of Elizabeth College. Traditionally, a specified amount of students can sign up for free on a first come, first serve basis. At this reception, students are awarded their annual superlatives (Best Funky Monkeys, Most Studious, etc.), the incoming RCC and Honors Society members are recognized, and the Athletic Directors and LZO give out awards. The program includes reflections from the College Head and Residence Director.
Faculty Dessert Reception
In Elizabeth College, we love our faculty members! This new event, started in 2016, is designed to connect students with the Elizabeth College faculty members and to recognize the importance that faculty members play in the Residential College system.
Elizabeth College strives to create relationships, to encourage, engage, and enhance the residents, commuters, faculty, and staff members of Elizabeth College. Through care, we seek leadership principles and communication strategies that are applied by each individual as frequently as possible. Students will learn that the college atmosphere is positive, respectful, and creates value while retaining and educating the members within.
