SEL Crew members are expected to average between 5-10 hours per week working on programs and projects. The entire Crew meets once every two weeks with individual directives being completed on non-meeting weeks. Entire Crew meetings usually last 1 1/2 hours. Meetings only occur when classes are in session.
This year’s committees include:
First Friday Committee (applications due by 10/20) – First Friday is an all-student event that promotes late-night programming in the TLCC on the first Friday of each month. This committee carries out the program.
EggsAM Committee (applications due by 10/27) – EggsAM is a decades-old tradition where faculty serve students a late-night breakfast during finals week. This committee carries out the program.

Thursday Night in the Game Room (applications due by 11/17) – The Campus Center should feel like a place that all students can visit for some fun. This committee designs programs that happen during the evening of each Thursday night (Bingo, Karaoke, etc.)
