Transcript Resident advisers are more than just law enforcers, they are friends and counselors to students living on campus. The main responsibility of the RA, said Resident Halls Assistant Director Bobby Brownstein, is not ^^^^^ only to ensure that residents abide by the regulations of the residence halls and the university, but also to create a warm atmosphere on their floor. "I think if to enforce the rules was the only thing they were there for, we would be better hiring a policeman ... they do a lot of other things," he said. "They're friends. Kneeling to plead his case, Angel asks RA Pamela Smith if she will let it go just this once ... They're counselors. They throw parties, and they enforce regulations. They try and develop a floor community, and I would think on most floors they work real well." "They're friends. They're counselors. They throw parties, and they enforce regulations." UH has always employed RAs in the residence halls, and while other schools have had to cut back for budget reasons, UH has not, Brownstein said. RAs receive free room and board. He also said the university administration has been very supportive of the RA pro gram. "They [administrators] didn't want to just house students, but [they also] wanted to create a residence halls environment. We didn't want to be an apartment complex," he ^^^^ said. Eric Mellinger, a Law Hall RA, loves his job. He said he has lived in residence halls for eight years and be- ^^^^™ came an RA because he decided he had a lot to offer students. "I enforce rules when it is necessary, I hate doing it, but it is part of my job. I apply myself as counselor when I find someone upset or depressed, but basically I'm their friend." — Beth A.
