If you have ever been an RA, these need no explanation. If you haven't, then you'll never understand.


Coming back refreshed after a break:



Trying to decide your leadership style for the new semester:


Figuring out how to handle a situation you haven't dealt with before:


When you have a quiet week in your hall/building:


Catching first-year students with alcohol like:


When you ask to see an ID but instead they slam the door in your face:


When your residents think they're getting away with throwing a party in their suite:


How you want to be getting residents to come to your hall meetings:




Picking rounds with your best buddy like:


Roommate's getting under each other's skin:



And then coming to you like...


When people actually show up to the program you spent weeks planning:


That one room that you have to knock every week to with a noise complaint:


That feeling when someone tells you you were their favorite RA:



Despite some of the late nights and stress, you love your job and you'll miss it after graduation:
