Top Reasons Why Your RA Is Great
G. Tatiana Amador

When I transferred to a four year University, I never thought that I would end up working for it. By my second semester at Campbell I was hired for start working for Residence Life. Working with Res Life has brought a lot of joy to my last two years of college. I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to work with such a great team of people. Just like with any job there have been good and bad things to come my way but nothing beat the satisfaction I receive from helping my residents. I love my residents and try to do anything that I can to help them. Even when I wasn't an RA myself, I still enjoyed having them around and being able to come to them with any questions I had. RA's are not always well liked, sadly. A lot of students don't appreciate all the things that RA's do. So, here are a few reasons why I think Resident Assistants are great and why you should too.

1. They give you food

2. They give you advice

3. They are always rooting for you

4. They know the daily college struggle

5. They make mistakes too

6. They are always available

7. They always plan events for you

8. They worry about what you think

9. They will always want to be your friend

10. They worry about you

11. They are just like you

The life of a RA is a little hectic, but it is one of the most rewarding jobs a college student can have. If you think some of these reasons apply to your RA, don't forget to thank them for all their hard work!

P.S- RA applications are out for next semester at most schools! Check it out, talk to your RA, ask questions, you might have just found a new job!
