My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘happy wednesday

Hi everyone,

So I’ve been thinking, and I noticed that I talk a whole lot about occurrences with all the drunk people, and not enough about the more relaxing part of the job. Today I want to talk about getting inspired for programming and events. I have a various number of links that can help you get inspired. These ideas can help with everyone too, not just RA’s!!

The first places I go to when looking for ideas are RA Programming sites, the top one being Reslife.net. BUT…

When I have lots of time in my hands, I try to create some events and programs that people have not done before. Repeating the same old things can get boring, for not only you, but your event goers too. I try getting inspired randomly.

Take peanut butter for example. That website has a list of national peanut butter days, you could take a whole month and devote it to peanut butter things (as long as no one is allergic) Have a food tasting event and Peanut Butter Games. GET CREATIVE!! finding inspiration in the weirdest of places can sometimes get you the best turn out.

Lastly, I want to mention the money aspect. We get a $150.00 budget but I like to save as much as possible. If you can find as many do it yourself things as possible, you can save money and throw a HOOPLA and go all out at the end of the semester!! Also, just browsing the internet one day you might  find something inspirational! Always keep your eyes open =)

Here is a silly video I found on youtube with some RA’s hosting a game-show week!

I HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL!!

Have a Happy Wednesday
