As the native assistant for the French House, you are to consider yourself as a “model” for other students in the house. Additionally, since the French House is a “theme” house at which students with a strong interest in and engagement with French apply for residence, you are to do your utmost to strengthen the identity of the house as a vital language and cultural center.
Your responsibilities as Native Assistant are therefore as follows:
-to speak French at all times.
-to organize, with the Resident Advisor, a minimum of three language activities per semester (movies, pause café, fêtes, and so forth…)
-to attend, with the Resident Advisor, these three activities (exception will be made only if you have a scheduled class; normally, however, these activities should not interfere with your class schedule).
-as the Native Assistant you are to mingle with other members of the house in order to foster and create a sense of community; this entails friendliness, and outgoing disposition and the readiness to spend time with others.
-as the Native Assistant, you should be aware that your strong commitment to making the French House a welcoming and dynamic home for French Club activities, and events connecting with the promotion of the French language and culture, is key to the success of the house.
