First and foremost, get to know the students. Overwhelmingly, I am confident to say, we have wonderful students at Calvin. They often are very interested in their neighborhood, the condition of their house, and want to be a part of the solution versus being a part of the problem. Often this is their first attempt at living on their own. So, naturally, they will make mistakes. They are “neighborhood novices”. As such, they need training and advice. Students that I talk with long for neighbors to get to know them and to treat them as adults, at least emerging adults. And when people are known by their neighbors, they will automatically care more about what neighbors think and prefer ways to serve them and contribute to the neighborhood as opposed to living in isolation, without regard for each other. So, get to know them by name, and speak with students directly when you have concerns (e.g., cars being parked irresponsibly, too much noise at night, condition of the house/yard, etc.).
