Parent Organization: York-University
My name is Matthew Harris and I am the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) for Stong Residence. I first want to welcome you to the vibrant community here at Stong. I hope that while you are here you will grow to call Stong your second home. Residence is where you are encouraged to be yourself and grow as a person.
As the RLC I oversee the residence community and assist you through your development at York. To help me with this are seven amazing student leaders called Dons. The Dons are here to help you transition into university life and become a strong and independent person, ready for the challenges that university can hold. Together we will work to ensure that Stong is a safe and inclusive space.
Your Dons are:
Rock House (3/4)- Matt Clarke
Hoover House (5/6) Corinne Barr
Iroquois House (7/8) Andrea Maille
Kaiser House (9/ 10) Rae Smith
Fisher House (11/ 12) Matthew Cheuk
Boynton House (13/ 14) Stavros Patouris
Don of Leadership and Learning Opportunities (DLLO) Jocelyn Donovan
As the year moves along there will be many opportunities to become involved in the residence and I highly encourage you to make the most of your time with us. I recommend that you look over the Residence Handbook and the Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities as they are key tools in ensuring that your transition into living in residence is a smooth one.
Finally, I hope that you find your time here in Stong to be a rewarding and eye opening experience that helps you discover your true potential.
