Each school year every dorm elects several leaders, including head of house and assistant head of house, who organize dorm duties and activities. These students, plus another student government member, form a house council that works closely with the house adults to establish dorm rules, keep the dorm safe and comfortable, and act as friends and mentors to others. Each dorm also has trained student counselors to work with students who need support.
