Hey there all my Grizzlies in the Port Dorm, I am Robin, your friendly Resident Advisor in 3A. A quick bit about me: I’m a Senior, an Online Communications Major (which is basically a fancy way of saying I’m majoring in the Internet), this is my third year as a RA and I rarely yell, so please don’t be afraid to come to me with any problems you are having. My door is always open, even when it’s closed.
When I was an RA in the Pioneer Dorm last year I got the sense that people didn’t really know how to talk to me. Me being an RA they always expected I was going to bust them for having someone in their room, write them up for having their music too loud, or that I was just a generally scary person. Which just isn’t true. You can keep your music as loud as you’d like!
I figured that if I started this blog, gave you guys a peak into what goes on in the mind of an RA, you wouldn’t be so weird around me (plus, I get course credit for blogging. Bonus!). After all, I’m a college student, too. I’m on scholarship here, and this RA job is a condition of that scholarship. We have the same workload, same pressures, and same concerns. We even share one big thing in common: we’re both worried about YOU.
It’s Summer Session, there are not a lot of us in this dorm, so let’s all try to be friends. Please feel free to comment, too!
P.S. Oh, and I was just kidding before, keep your music down. 😉
