We have several incredible Staff Affiliates (SA) for Cockrell-McIntosh Commons. They are staff members at SMU in the division of Student Affairs, and they work all over campus! Although our Staff Affiliates don’t live in Cockrell-McIntosh like our Residential Community Director, they join in on Cockrell-McIntosh Commons activities as often as they can and can be seen representing Cockrell-McIntosh all across campus! Our Staff Affiliates love talking to Cockrell-McIntosh residents and are great resources across campus. When you see one of our SAs around campus, make sure to introduce yourself and say hello!
