[Hammond] –Southeastern Louisiana University’s annual Fais Do Do will be held Apr. 21. Every spring University Housing hosts this event encourages residents to reapply to live on campus and to promote residential life for students not already living in the Residence Halls.
The main focus of the event is a crawfish boil. This year’s activities will include volleyball, a boxing inflatable, and a photobooth. In past years, entertaining has included a mechanical bull, inflatables and rock wall.
Resident Assistant Two Michael Barton is chairman of the Departmental Programming Committee within University Housing. The committee is in charge of planning and implementing all details of the event, including set-up, takedown, activities and music.
Graduating senior Barton said, “[I feel] bittersweet because I have spent the last two and a half years as a Resident Assistant and have grown from the experience.” The committee works in partnership with Dining Services to select a vendor for the crawfish. Dining Services also assists Housing in serving the crawfish.
Resident Assistant One John Collum said, “It is a time to see residents interacting with one another and getting closer.”
Working in shifts Resident Assistants help alongside the Departmental Programming Committee Resident Assistants who work the entire event. Resident Assistant Two Michael Barton has helped coordinate three Fais Do Do events throughout his experience with Housing.
Resident Assistant One Aaron Johnson said, “I’m looking forward to our residents using the experience to return to housing. [Being my last Fais Do Do,] I’m sad because of my love of housing.”
