I started this blog last year to track my first year as an RA. Now, it's the second year on the job and I've been promoted to Senior Resident Assistant. Let the story continue!
Happy December! The semester is almost over which means we get to close down the building and go home to the family soon!!!!
I’m having the issue of people taking stuff and tearing down things in my hall. The most recent has been the Community Standards (rules) for the hall.
So I reposted them, and this time it has a lovely blue tape border… it’s gonna take a bit of effort if they are wanting to steal it again.
On duty for the first weekend night this semester — let’s do this!
Flyer for this Sunday’s hall program!
Things in my hall continue to go missing (stolen).
Last month my decorations were ripped or removed one evening. I eventually found them hidden in a small common room in my hall. Then last week I had a resident had a personal item stolen from her cork board next to her door. And now this morning I woke up and the same resident and I both had our school pennants removed from our cork boards.
We’ve already had a building wide meeting with my boss addressing the issue. Then my boss sent out an e-mail to the building. I’ll have a hall meeting on Tuesday to talk about it. But I don’t know what to do!!! I feel frustrated that I can’t do anything other than say it’s a policy violation.
Do any RAs have advice?
We announced the theme for Spring Training today at the large staff meeting!
My flyer for the building trip to go ice skating.
I think my flyer making skills have improved quite a bit!
