My Life as an RA

Archive for May 2012

Good morning everyone! It is Monday!

This weekend I stayed at school and decided to go on rounds of the campus with my boss because he was RDOD, (resident director on duty). The campus was swarming with people, but nothing was “happening.”

When we were leaving the last building we had to visit, he saw someone throw a HUGE traffic cone out the window. We obviously cannot ignore things like this because not only is it a policy violation, but it puts others in harm. He called public safety and when we got up to the apartment, no one answered the door.

Finally a girl and a guy answered the door and said that they did not live in the apartment and that everyone had left them. We let them go and soon enough we see a huge crowd of people coming towards the room and so we tell them to stop and they RUN!!!

We went on a chase, only to find out that no one left the building, but that they ran into another room.(which we did not have a clue which room) When we went back up to the apartment, 3 guys were there. Tt was an all girl apartment, so once again, none of them lived there.

We started to get annoyed because people continued to try to come back, but no one lived there. We told everyone to leave and locked the apartment door that the girls had left unlocked. The cone culprit is yet to be found.

The rest of the night consisted of us riding around campus with the police officers,waiting for a call. We had no calls, just plenty of jokes from car to car.

If it’s one thing I have learned as an RA, it’s that when you are expecting something to happen, nothing happens, when you expect a quiet night, EVERYTHING happens.

It was just one of those wierd Friday nights where nothing happened…

OH WELL!! GOOD FOR US!!! NO REPORTS!! =)

Have a great week everyone!

It is friday!! I am so excited!!

Today will be such an exciting day because we have the RA Banquet and the theme is hollywood. This means I am getting super dressed up today! On top of that my boss is working tonight and I made over one hundred cookies last night to bring around to public safety and the other RA’s that will be on =).

To top off all the awesomeness I had my NINJA event on Wednesday and it was fun. I am required to have a campus-wide event and I chose to do NINJA. It actually is an acronym that I made up with the help of some other RA’s with steps to making important decisions. Only 12 people came BUT… we had loads of fun! Here are some pics:

WELCOME WEDNESDAY!!

TODAY IS GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY!! WHY?? I HAVE A CAMPUS WIDE EVENT!!! I am so excited!! PICS TO COME FROM THE EVENT!!

Anyways… let’s talk about the winner mentioned on my lovely title, shall we? WE sure shall.

Last night I was on duty, and at around 130 AM I go down to lock the lounge. When I close the lounge door, a bunch of drunk people come out of the elevator to go to the bar… I hear someone throw a cup in the elevator and I asked who threw it and the last kid out said he didn’t do it (of course). One of the girls in the elevator picked up the cup for him. I have a few things to mention on his behalf:

1ST: He does not even live in our building

2nd: He goes there to get his laundry done and drink

3rd: He has no respect for anyone there (hence the thrown cup)

Verdict: NUMBER ONE PLACE ON MY HIT LIST!!

WHAT A WINNER!!!

Next time I see him, he will get a nice loooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggggggg talk about how I do not respect his lack of respect in my Hall. I think I might have to write this down with big eloquent words just to throw him off.

We will see =)

ANYWAYS!! HAVE A HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
