Get Lucky with Herd the Werd!

This Thursday, March 17th, is St. Patrick’s Day! For those with Irish heritage, it’s a time to be proud of your background and ancestry.

It’s going to be a nice (if rainy) week, and we’ve got a variety of articles ready for you. From mocktails to holiday traditions, Netflix to Yik Yak, we’ve got you covered with our St. Paddy’s themed Herd the Werd! Just remember: it’s Paddy’s, not Patty’s.

Site update in progress!

Hello everyone! Throughout the past year or two, Interhall Council’s website has been rarely used, and even more rarely updated. It’s mainly served as a function for submitting GRRP awards, as well as submitting PDRs and advertising PDRs. This year, we are hoping to make many changes to the website to increase clarity, functionality and, well, usefulness.


As Vice President of Operations for Interhall Council, I will be working throughout the year to improve the website and make sure that it is up-to-date. So far, that includes updating the members page, adding a new Herd the Werd: Article Submission form, and cleaning up the header a bit. I’ve also updated plug-ins and added a small bit of content on certain pages. It’s still a work in progress, but progress is being made!


Our aim is to make the website a better hub for Interhall Council, and have a better platform to represent our organization publicly.  Our next step will be to better integrate social media through our website, uploading a current version of the Interhall Council Constitution, By-laws & Policies, as well as going through all of our pages to update them and have them provide more information. If you have any feedback, feel free to comment here, or contact us directly.
