Get Involved at Jardine Apartments

Residents' Council

The Jardine Residents' Council is a monthly forum where residents are invited to hear updates on the Jardine community, learn about housing and campus resources, ask questions of staff and get to know other members of the community. Each month, there is a new central topic and all residents are encouraged to attend.

Global Women's Society

Events sponsored by the Global Women's Society provide women in Jardine Apartments with opportunities to come together to learn, create, develop friendships and just have fun. The group meets each month to make a dish, complete a craft, play games, enjoy music, discover services offered in the Manhattan area and share other cultures.

For more information about the Global Women's Society, call 785-532-3790.

Sponsored and advised by the Jardine staff, all women in the community are cordially invited to participate.

Jardine Tutoring Program

The Jardine Tutoring Program is sponsored by the Jardine Apartments office and coordinated by its staff.

The tutoring program is open to all school-age children living at Jardine. The service is available on a first come, first serve basis. Children are assigned a student tutor from around the Manhattan community at the beginning of the academic year, and the two meet once a week to establish a mentoring relationship, complete homework assignments and participate in learning activities.

For more information about the tutoring program or to volunteer as a tutor, call 785-532-3790.

Social Justice Alliance

The members of the HDS Social Justice Alliance educate residents about relevant issues in the residence halls through engaging programs and other activities. The Multicultural Lounge is located in Kramer Dining Center and contains resources for those wishing to learn more about diversity and its positive impacts on society.

Neighborhood Programs

Jardine is divided into several neighborhoods, each served by a trained staff member or assistant coordinator who plans a number of activities.

These events provide opportunities for residents to become better acquainted. Neighborhood programs often involve barbecues, picnics, bowling, ping-pong tournaments, classic movie nights, pumpkin carving contests and ice cream socials. Watch for more information about upcoming events in the Jardine Journal or contact your neighborhood staff.

Community-Wide Programming

A tradition of nationally recognized community events is one of the most appealing parts of the Jardine living experience. Jardine staff members, many times in coordination with residents, plan at least two programs each month in which residents are encouraged to get involved. Community-wide programs are designed to allow residents the chance to learn, socialize, serve and grow — all while having fun. In addition, these programs often function as a means of communicating important complex information to residents.

Events like the Opening Olympics, Health and Safety Fair, Barn Party, State Fair Trip, Canoe Trip and Cultural Community Celebration Week are quickly listed by residents as programs they've enjoyed the most.

Information about upcoming programs can be found in the Jardine Journal, and will be posted at mailboxes and laundry facilities.
