My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘college

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!

WELCOME TO THROWBACK THURSDAY!!

I have anticipated writing this post, and trying my best to make this as decent as possible. I think I will succeed:

SOOO…. Last year, as my first year as an RA, the year was coming to an end and everything had gone well. It was a sunday night and I was in my room watching the pirates of the Caribbean with some of my residents. We were almost done with the third one when around midnight I hear screaming.

Now, usually the screaming goes away, but this did not stop. I pause the movie and go out to see what it going on. What I saw I can never get back.. One of the guys from the floor below me was butt naked jumping up and down on the stair landing. As soon as he saw me he covered him self and ran down the stairs.

I followed him and I see a HUGE CROWD of people laughing at him. I send them all away and tell him to put some clothes on. He proceeded to partyboy one of my residents and then tells me he doesn’t want to stop because its fun.

I obviously called public safety and they got there so fast! Two officers for this one kid! He was so rude and loud to the officers I was amazed he didn’t leave in handcuffs that night. On top of all this, his teammate from the baseball team was trying to talk the cops down and take responsibility for everything! HE WAS DRUNK TOO!!

When the officers asked him if was naked earlier (at this point he had put on boxers when they found out the cops were coming) he said no and they looked at me and ask did you see this kid naked? and I said yes, and they turned back to him and said you were naked.

They finally got him to bed and sent me off to my room. I RAN UP SO FAST AND LOCKED THE DOOR!! His teammate was looking at me with such evil eyes.

OH THE THINGS I HAD TO DEAL WITH LAST YEAR….Freshman are something else….

I hope you enjoyed this post!!  I can now laugh about this, but last year, I was almost crying!
