What leadership opportunities are there in Coate?
The Coate Neighborhood Council represents the residents of Coate. The executive board members apply to represent Coate and are voted in by the residents of Coate via online election the summer prior to their freshman year. The hall council executives help put on programs in the hall, create awareness about a variety of topics, and help make Coate a better living environment from feedback they get from the residents and their cube representatives.

Cube representatives are typically elected at the first cube meeting. These individuals help bring information to their cubes based on discussions from the council meetings. Both hall council executive and cube representatives are exciting and great opportunities to meet people, gain leadership skills, and make a difference!
