Birnam Wood Community Council

Members of the birnam wood community council

Hall council leadership is a great way to meet new people and make an impact in your community. Some past events have included karaoke nights, the annual Piccadilly dance, MarioKart, Mash Mixer, wellness events, social justice programming, game nights, movie nights and academic support events…just to name a few!

There will be a Kick Off event that will provide more information during the first week of fall quarter, with elections occurring in October. For more information about hall council, talk to your Resident Advisor and keep an eye out for posters or Facebook posts promoting the events!
