Residence Life Conference to Train Superheroes

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it’s SUNY Cortland’s 38th annual Residence Life Conference and it’s themed this year on superheroes. Roughly 350 students are expected to visit the College on Saturday, Feb. 21, for leadership training in the residence life and housing field. They’ll come from 25 colleges and universities.

“Not All Superheroes Wear Capes” takes place in Corey Union from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It features four program sessions, continental breakfast and lunch, and Roll Call — a popular competition comprised of two to five minute residence life skits featuring acting, singing, dancing, step dance or video.

The theatricals are intended to introduce the competitor’s school and show school pride. Skits will be judged based on originality, creativity, enthusiasm, energy and the use of the superheroes conference theme. The school that wins receives an official Roll Call Trophy.

The conference’s annual silent auction also will be held during the event, with this year’s proceeds to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Central New York.
