College Humor - All RA Floor

Campus living

If you've ever lived on campus, what did you like about it?  How has it impacted your college experience? What is something that you wish your RA did with you?

Why I love UMaine!

As many potential college students do in high school, I had to apply to UMaine as my safety school.  It was by no means my first choice.  In fact, it was pretty close to my last choice.  However it was lucky I applied at all because it was one of the three out of eight schools that accepted me.  And thus, here I am!

I became very involved on campus throughout my time at UMaine.  I'm now an RA, a lifeguard at the Rec Center, an editor for Doulos Magazine, and a member of the Honors College.  I realized that even though I thought I wanted a small campus when I was in high school, this big campus feels like a perfect fit.  Now I can't picture myself anywhere else.

This blog is primarily going to be about the excitement that comes with being an RA.  I'll post different activities and interesting things about my experience in this job.  If you're an RA yourself, or if you have some suggestions for fun activities that residents living on campus would enjoy, feel free to share!  I'd love to hear what you have to say!
