Resident Advisor

Eastern Michigan University Housing

 I manage a floor of 60 residents with a co-RA. I organize three programs each month, consisting of an active in which I create an event with and for the residents, a piggy-back in which I bring the residents to an event on campus already, and a passive in which the residents just have to absorb the program. A passive can be something such as an informative or interactive bulletin board to quotes posted on the wall. Along with this I am also responsible for creating bulletin boards each month. As a resident advisor I am responsible for creating community on the floor I reside, serving desk hours at the residence hall's front desk, deal with any situations that could arise with the residents, and fill out paperwork.
