Upperclass R.I.S.E. House
Gettysburg College offers substance-free housing through the R.I.S.E. program (Respecting Individual Student Expectations about alcohol). R.I.S.E. is designed to help students connect with alternative social programming that focuses on implementing on and off campus substance-free programming, building student relationships, and healthy lifestyle choices. Students who choose participate in this program make a commitment to maintain a living environment which promotes and respects healthy lifestyle choices.
Upperclass students are involved in the program in two ways. The first is to choose to be a participant by asking to be added to the R.I.S.E. Alias. Through the Alias students will learn about upcoming meetings/programs and have the opportunity to share program ideas with R.I.S.E staff members. The second way to be involved as an upperclass student is to live in the R.I.S.E. House at Quarry Suites-West Hall. R.I.S.E. House amenities include: Game room with pool table, basketball court, study lounge, and kitchen.
Students who choose to live in the R.I.S.E house make a commitment to maintain a living environment which promotes and respects healthy lifestyle choices. All students who would like to live in the house must complete the R.I.S.E. Housing Application that is due in February.
Upperclass students who select to live in a R.I.S.E. room agree to:
**All students are reminded that they must comply with campus alcohol and drug policies, which can be found in the Handbook of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
R.I.S.E. members who fail to fulfill the R.I.S.E. program residency responsibilities are subject to relocation and, when appropriate, may be sanctioned through the campus student conduct system.
R.I.S.E. students and staff work collaboratively to coordinate on campus and off campus programs that focus on helping students to create strong relationship bonds with other students and to have fun. The R.I.S.E. program is supported by the Student Activities fee. The R.I.S.E. program also collaborates with other offices to put design and implement programs. Some R.I.S.E. programs include:
