The RA experience provides many opportunities to observe and correct undesirable behavior, to orient students to University life, to aid in their emotional and academic adjustment, to develop certain social skills, to be available to residents and encourage student responsibility and accountability. Resident assistants are an integral part of the out-of-class learning experience. It’s not just a Job, it’s an Adventure!!!!!!
