Jeff: Greetings internet viewers. If you're watching this video You are coming to Chico State

To live within the Residence Halls. Well today, I'm in front of Shasta Hall.

Which is very similar to Lassen Hall

They're like, two buildings, but one community.

This is Megan. One of the RA's here. Meagan: Hey Jeff: That's enough. Let's go inside and check them out.

Oh this is pretty cool. Meagan: Yeah Jeff: What's going on here?

Meagan: Well, this is the front desk

It's essentially like the heart of the community.

Shasta and Lassen have the same set up they're just two different buildings.

So you're going to see kind of the same thing when you go over there as well. But the front desk

always has a desk attendant here

24 hours a day. They're here to answer any of your questions. Jeff: What so she's here

24 hours a day? Meagan: No

but the desk is always open, and there's always A desk attendant here.

Jeff: Oh, I gotcha. Desk Attendant: I'm not always here

I have to sleep.

Jeff: Sassy, I like it.

Meagan: You can make appointments with them at the front desk

for your ARCC or RCC. Jeff: Like if I get in trouble? Meagan: Yeah.

Your RCC is your Residence Community Coordinator.

So they're kind of like the big boss of the building Jeff: Oh cool.

Meagan: The ARCC is the Assistant Residence Community Coordinator

and they're more in charge of programming.

And also, you're roommate situations.

So if you're having a problem with your roommate you want to schedule an appointment

with your ARCC you can do that

But they're also in charge of Hall Council. Which is like student government for

the residence halls. Jeff: That sounds like a lot of fun. Meagan: Yeah its definitely awesome. Jeff: Cool.
