((OOC: Chaly, you *do* know what they say about ice chewers, right?))
We have three "houses" -- actually floors of the dorms. There's a fourth "house" for those that live off-campus, but that just started last year, and they're much smaller.
First-floor residents call themselves Primes (creative, huh?). On average, these tend to be more studious and laid back.
Second-floor residents call themselves Wendigos. They are more likely to cause trouble. *glares at Talbon, the second-floor-residing RM* But we tend to put the students with the roughest power problems there, as the others can help keep them under control.
Third-floor residents are called Atlans, tend to be more prone to sports.
The non-resident "house" meets in the lounge and call themselves Expatriots. For inter-house activities, they may compete as equals, but due to their smaller numbers, they are, unfortunately, disqualified from some events.
Now don't get me wrong! The students in these houses are for the most part fairly well-mixed. Just, over time, certain averages seem to work out. And the inter-house rivalries are <i>always good-natured.</i>
Your entry processing will determine your placement as far as the houses. Once you meet with your floor (or the Expatriots), I'm sure they'll let you in on any House traditions and such.
And after last year's fiasco, let me reiterate to you all: <i>Hazing will not be tolerated</i>.
((OOC: When this meeting breaks up, we'll start four threads for the sepperate "house" meetings.))
