Hip, Hip… Who’s an RA??
I. Am. So. Excited.
If you haven’t read a certain few – *cough, cough* any – of my posts about being a student here, let me summarize: I LOVE IT. It’s awesome. And I have loved sharing my experiences as a first year Niblette with everyone I meet, but I especially love sharing them with prospective students. Why? Honestly, because while there is a less than 1% chance that any of these students are as clueless about college as I was, I want to inform them of everything.
I probably toe the ‘overboard’ line. I sometimes start to worry that I’m setting the bar too high – and then I remember that this is Concordia and it’s the best place on the planet and I calm down.
Mainly, though, it’s been me just telling my side of the story, and stopping there. It’s great, but for the longest time I just wanted more for all those potential Niblets and Niblettes out there! How could I be more for them?
And then, being the magical place that this campus is, I started seeing posters about joining the ResLife team as a Resident Assistant.
As the great and inspiring Ron Stoppable always said: BOOYAH.
Before, it was just “This is my story, and your story is going to be great, too!” Now I get to help make their stories great!!
Being a member of the ResLife team is an opportunity that I am so grateful for – especially since my turf is the always epic Erickson Hall. I’ve got so many people around me and resources at my fingertips – it’s crazy, but amazing, because I know that with a team like this, you just can’t lose!
While some people are asking “Is it almost time for summer?” I’m asking, “Is it almost time for training!?”
