I am the Graduate Resident Advisor at Theta Delta Chi at MIT. Every summer, the fraternity participates in work week, a week right before classes and rush dedicated to the upkeep of the house, all done by its current members. Work Weeks were one of my favorites at TDC as an undergrad.
As a Graduate Advisor, I now instead use that week to remodel the suite of the house reserved for Resident Advisors. The summer of 2014, Jessica Artiles and I remodelled the walk in closet, bathroom, and painted the living room and bedroom. In the summer of 2015, we installed a kitchennette and added furniture, as well as replaced an old porcelain sink. This most recent summer, we redid the closet in the bedroom, added pipe shelves, and turned our bathroom into a "Moroccan Paradise!"
