Representative Sarah Lowe of Hotz Honors Hall spoke about her favorite kind of programming at Monday’s Residents’ Interhall Congress meeting.

She said her favorite programs to sponsor are the educational programs that are fun and build community.

She said she enjoyed Housing’s @Home Program Chocolate Wasted (an alcohol-awareness, chocolate-coated program) and she’s looking forward to the RIC-sponsored Calligraphy Workshop led by Wyatt Heikes.
