Community Events

The HDH CONNECT team is proud to deliver programming that focuses on the holistic development of our residents while creating a welcoming and thriving community in which they live. The team is also responsible for handling the student conduct process, as well as assessment initiatives to gather residents’ feedback.

Large overall events are held for all graduate students and their families and hosted in partnership with the Graduate Student Association. Past examples include Rooftop Lounge (Mesa Nueva), Open Air Cinema (OMS), Snow Day (Coast), Block Party (OMS), and new for 2019, Beach Day (La Jolla Shores).

Community Assistant programs include smaller events that are typically geared to a specific housing community and focus on an individual component of the HDH CONNECT model. Examples include OMS Live!, a Ted-style speaking program; the “Paws and Relax” event at Mesa Nueva; and service opportunities such as volunteering with the Bannister House.

Community Assistant

A Community Assistant (CA) is a student employee who is a member of the Housing • Dining • Hospitality (HDH) staff and a resident of Graduate and Family Housing. CAs collaborate with HDH staff and campus partners to create community-focused programs by utilizing the HDH CONNECT model. The goal of a CA is to host programs that enhance community building, connect residents within their own communities and across all seven Graduate and Family Housing communities, and link residents to campus resources and partners.

Community Assistant positions are posted on this site annually; please check back regularly for more information.
