HDH Connect 

Community Events 

The HDH CONNECT team is proud to deliver programming that focuses on the holistic development of our residents while creating a welcoming and thriving community in which they live. The team is also responsible for handling the student conduct process, as well as assessment initiatives to gather residents’ feedback.

Large overall events are held for all graduate students and their families and hosted in partnership with the Graduate Student Association. Past examples include Rooftop Lounge (Mesa Nueva), Open Air Cinema (O

MS), Snow Day (Coast), Block Party (OMS), and Beach Day (La Jolla Shores).

Community Assistant programs include smaller events that are typically geared to a specific housing community and focus on an individual component of the HDH CONNECT model. Examples include OMS Live!, a Ted-style speaking program; the “ Paws and Relax” event at Mesa Nueva; and service opportunities such as volunteering with the Bannister House.
