My Life as an RA

Posts Tagged ‘officers

Hey all!!

So by now you all know that I am an RA off campus. Well last night I decided to come to campus because I needed to get some shots of all the RA’s for superlatives that we are doing.

As soon as I get to campus, I see some officers and go over to talk to them. They were rushing to their car becasue there was a fire alarm. I hopped right in with them and took a ride over. When we got there, not even half of the RA staff was around to do rounds of the building…I am so glad I was there to help.

What I thought was funny was the officer in the car in front of us was speeding over to the building, and they had already announced over the radio that there was no actual fire.

If you guys could see that man run out of a car you would laugh. He had the silliest waddle run I HAD EVER SEEN!!

It kind of looked something like this. Except he had a lot of clothes on and was shorter =) Very entertaining.

Anyways.. after the round was done, I went around to all the buildings and filmed as many RA’s as possible, and I ended up getting back to my apartment at around 1AM.

  • What I miss about campus: seeing so many faces
  • What I do not miss about campus: being sucked in and staying up late…and going to fire alarms (we have plenty)

THATS ALL I GOT TODAY!!

HAPPY FRIDAY…ENJOY THE WEEKEND!!

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!

Hi Bloggers!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

So a couple of nights ago we had an event in the building thrown by hall council and we made flubber! We had a great time and many fails before we succeeded!

I was going to talk about all the fun BUT, last night we had a fire alarm. Why? MY APARTMENT!!  Read the rest of this entry »

Hi!

So my title is really confusing because if you search the word ISO I guarantee you will not find what I am talking about. The ISO I am talking about is the institutional security officers on our campus that are not quite officers but pose some authority. They are like RA reinforcements we could say =)

ANYWAYS… since I am at the downtown housing, we did not have an ISO last semester and we did not start with one. Suddenly we now have ISO’s. I personally do not mind (more people to talk to :D) but the residents seem to be thrown back by it.

I have been receiving many questions about this and NO, no one is in trouble! Every building on campus has ISO’s doing rounds and just showing there presence, except for ours. We finally have that and that’t is =) I think many people are concerned because now they have to figure out how they will sneak in the alcohol since we have the ISO’s there starting at 3PM.

OH WELL! IM HAPPY! They are fun to talk to!

Have an enjoyable day!

P.S…2 DAYS TO SPRING BREAK!! WOOT WOOT… much needed =D
