Johnson Hall is one of the six co-ed residence halls in Dickinson Community. There are three co-ed floors, two all-male floors and one all-female floor. Housing about 140 students, Johnson provides a great environment to study, socialize and meet new people. Johnson Hall's name is derived from an ancient word for "Co-rec." Well, while that isn't the whole truth, it might as well be, because Johnson Hall had the only undefeated Co-rec football team for this season in Dickison Community. We went on to win the Co-rec Championship, beating Rafuse Hall 19-18.
Aside from our strong sports interest, the students participate in many other activites. The Johnson Hall Council, consisiting of six members, runs hall meetings every other wek, plans social activities, gathers input on how Johnson spends its financial allocation and initiates its fundraisers. This semester, we feature a Games Night every other week, in which students can take a study break and relax, we had a Halloween Party with free candy, we are planning a pool and ping-pong tournament, a Pie in the Face fundraiser, and more! The Pie in the Face proceeds will be used to purchase gifts for a needy family that the hall is "adopting" for the holidays.
The living-learning environment of Johnson Hall is enhanced by a Residential Life Staff of six resident assistants and a resident director. There is a resident assistant on each floor and they are available for resources as well as planning educationsl and social programs. Some examples of this semester's programs featured Self Defense, Basic Auto Maintenance, a Sexual Jeopardy Game, a trip to a Binghamton Rangers Hockey Game, a White Water Rafting Trip, a Twilight Zone Dance Party, Acquaintance Rape Awareness and a 3 day series of events called Johnson Mayhem that included a Scavenger Hunt, Newly Roomies Game, Volleyball Tournament and Ice Cream Social.
Of course, studyingand doing classwork is always part of the agenda as well! We have a large study lounge that is heavily used, and a small quiet study room in the basement, fondly know as the "dungeon: by all Johnsonites. If you're interested in forming study groups, there is an informal class sign-up where you can locate other students in the building with the same class as you.
Johnson Hall has many strong points, but the people are what makes it a great place to live, learn and have fun. So come join us!
