The residential team is constantly trying to spice up residential life! The team comprises Residential Fellows (RFs) and Residential Assistants (RAs) who will organise events of various scales and with multiple innovative themes among our floors, neighbourhoods, and sometimes even involving the whole Cinnamon community. A neighbourhood party that tests your spice tolerance, a college-wide event that features a battle of the stars, you name it!
Every semester, the RA Events team organises at least one novel event for the entire college with the aim of building community, fostering bonds and facilitating interactions among all the residents. Past events include vertical marathon, movie marathon, laser tag tournament and bubble ball competition.
The RAs also work with RFs to organise weekly yoga sessions or other interesting activities to promote a fun and vibrant residential life experience.
A neighbourhood is made up of three floors. Each neighbourhood usually organises a neighbourhood party every semester, where residents across the three floors are given an opportunity to mingle. These parties often have themes and special activities, sometimes commemorating festive seasons like Chinese New Year, Mid-autumn festival, etc, other times just thinly-veiled excuses to consume large amounts of durian.
Meet-Your-Neighbours sessions, or MYN, are short events held at the beginning of each semester. They give residents a chance to meet and socialise with their neighbours, as well as ask their RAs any questions they might have about residential living. RFs may also be present at such sessions to get to know the residents and give them some advice on residential living.
