Executive  Summary    Our  platform  is  based  off  creating  a  social  
environment  within  Harper  that  caters  to   the  diverse  culture  of  the  house.  Our   ultimate  goal  is  to  create  a  house  that   everyone  feels  welcome  within,  and  that   the  large  variety  of  events  will  attract  their   interest  at  multiple  points  during  the  year.

Communication  
We  wish  to  improve  communication  through  the  executive  and  Resident  life  staff  to  members  of   the  house,  through  both  increased  accountability  on  behalf  of  the  wing  reps,  and  each  individual   executive  member.  Our  goals  would  see  executive  made  available  to  house  members  as  much   as  possible,  and  investigate  with  a  weekly  or  biweekly  newsletter  to  the  house.      

Social  Activities  
We  would  strive  to  have  weekly  or  biweekly  activities,  such  as  game  nights,  movie  nights  and   small  wing  contests  to  gain  points  over  the  course  of  the  year  in  a  Harper  version  of  the   President’s  Cup!  The  logistics  of  this  would  be  worked  out,  and  residents  would  be  given  at  least   7  days  notice  prior  to  a  point-­‐worthy  event.      

Wellness  
As  part  of  our  planning  of  events,  we  would  keep  the  idea  of  active  living  and  healthy  lifestyle   choices  in  mind.  Picking  activities  that  give  people  the  opportunity  to  be  moving  while  enjoying   camaraderie  and  plenty  of  laughs.  We  would  ensure  that  all  students  understand  how  to  access   wellness  services  on  campus,  and  help  coordinate  wellness  related  activities  with  the  wellness   rep  and  residence  life  team.    

Financial  
Events  organized  through  our  Social  Chairs  under  the  house  would  be  delivered  on  or  under   budget  agreed  upon  by  the  House.  If  an  event  or  activity  is  at  risk  of  going  over  budget,  by   working  through  the  Secretary/Treasurer  and  Executive  Team  we  would  re-­‐submit  a  budget  at   the  next  house  council  meeting  for  our  Reps  to  approve.  This  increases  accountability  on  the   part  of  the  Executive  Team  in  use  of  the  House  budget.

About  Tim  and  Keegan  
  The  idea  of  running  in  House  elections  began  to  circulate  through  our  minds  in  early  September,   shortly  after  we  meet  at  a  frosh  week  activity.  After  much  bonding  and  many  laughs  through   first  semester,  we  realized  our  potential  as  a  team,  to  help  keep  making  Harper  a  great  place  to   live.  By  the  time  it  came  to  nominations,  it  was  a  given  that  we  would  throw  our  name  on  the   ballet.  We’re  happy  to  currently  be  candidates  in  the  election,  and  welcome  any  questions   related  to  our  platform  positions  or  other  items.
