Programs in Blossom
BLOSSOM RED CARPET
Blossom Red Carpet is a building-wide fashion show! It’s an evening filled with paparazzi and special guest speakers who educate us on sustainable clothes shopping, basic hygiene, self care, and simply being a woman in the modern day world. We’ll swap all sorts of fashionable ideas, tips, tricks while celebrating the unique individualities of the women in Blossom.
BLOSSOM THANKSGIVING DINNER
Each November, Blossom Hall hosts an exclusive Thanksgiving Dinner. Every single resident of Blossom is invited along with female faculty and staff. Everyone gets to contribute a dish and is provided with a bountiful amount of yummy food. It is a great time to get together as a hall, share a meal, and celebrate the things we have to be thankful for in our lives.
CHRISTMAS IN BLOSSOM
During the holiday season, Blossom Hall hosts a unique, campus wide Christmas program. You might take a train ride on the Polar Express or you may be tasked with stopping the Grinch from stealing Christmas, or you may travel to Christmas Town with Jack Skellington. Each year brings a new Christmas twist!
Meet the Staff
RESIDENT DIRECTOR - Michelle Alessandro
Michelle is the Resident Director of Blossom Hall. She received her bachelor's in social work from Malone University and master’s in social work from Baylor University. Michelle lived in Waco, Texas, for eight years and worked in medical social work during that time period. Then, she moved back to her hometown of Canton, Ohio, in July of 2020 to embark on her dream job of being an RD at her Alma Mater. Michelle also serves as the Co-Advisor for the "Be: Justice" Student Group/SFO, Co-Director for the "Malone Serves" Scholarship Program, and, occasionally, an adjunct teacher in Malone's Social Work Department. Michelle enjoys spending time with her pets (one dog and two cats), hanging out with her family, and drinking a good cup of coffee. As a resident director, Michelle wants her residents to feel welcomed, valued, dignified, and like Malone is a home away from home. She believes living at Malone allows for students to form close connections, have in-depth conversations, and grow in their relationship with others and with Christ.
