What leadership opportunities are there in Wentz?
There is a hall council executive team for Wentz Hall. These individuals apply to represent Wentz and are voted in by the residents of Wentz. The hall council executives help put on programs in the hall, create awareness about a variety of topics, and help make Wentz a better living environment from feedback they get from the residents.

Wing representatives are elected typically at the first wing meeting.. Both hall council executive and wing representatives are exciting and great opportunities to meet people, gain leadership skills, and make a difference!
