It is always important to find your niche in the residence halls. It is my job as an RA to be there to help you (as incoming first-years) find your place and your "groove." I try to come up with programs that people will enjoy participating in. I help residents find clubs and classes and interests to build upon. It is a fun job, one that I love. Sometimes I am tired, sometimes it is a taxing job. But I have to tell you, RA Appreciation Day was Wednesday, and I felt appreciated. The sign the residents in my hall made me really made my day. They probably don't even know how much it meant to me. You may not love your RA/AC/CA whatever person when you are living on campus, but it's probably not in your worst interest to be friendly with them!
