RLC Welcome


Hello Bethune Residence

My name is Tammy Douglas and I am the Residence Life Coordinator (RLC) for Bethune Residence. I first want to welcome you to the vibrant community here at Bethune Residence. I hope that while you are here you will grow to call Bethune your second home. Residence is where you are encouraged to be yourself and grow as a person.

As the RLC I oversee the residence community and assist you through your development at York. To help me with this are 7 amazing student leaders called Dons. The Dons are here to help you transition into university life and become a strong and independent person, ready for the challenges that university can hold. Together we will work to ensure that Bethune is a safe and inclusive space.

Bethune Residence is proud to be the home of the Life Sciences Living Learning Community. As a member of this community residents will be housed with residents who are part of a similar academic program or have similar interests. By living in this community you will be able to create strong academic and social relationships that will help you become a successful student.

As the year moves along there will be many opportunities to become involved in the residence and I highly encourage you to make the most of your time with us. I recommend that you look over the Residence Handbook and the Student Code of Rights and Responsibilities as they are key tools in ensuring that your transition into living in residence is a smooth one.

Finally, I hope that you find your time here in Bethune to be a rewarding and eye-opening experience that helps you discover your true potential.
