Additional Details About DormGov

Students on DormGov inform key decisions around the culture of the house; what kinds of events take place in the house; how the house uses its House Dues; and how the house connects/interacts with the rest of campus. DormGov generally meets once a week and receives guidance from residential student leaders.

Examples of DormGov positions include:

  • Dining Ambassador
  • Frosh Council Representative
  • Service Liasion
  • Treasurer
