Living in the dormitory provides for many interesting experiences and opportunities for personal growth. Life can best be separated into two categories — weekdays and weekends. For some individuals, the two are one. In the Quad, the floors are coed without any sort of curfew, compared to other Texas state universities. To the disappoint- ^^BHH| ment of some, the dorm rooms are still single sex. Each floor has one or two resident advisors, affectionately called by the hhbm acronym RA. They closely parallel prison guards, being responsible for enforcement of dormitory policies. An RA's character can range from friendlike to Stalinistic-like enforcers such as a former marine who patrolled not only his floor but the other three floors of the building at all hours of the night. Some RAs are insane about quiet hour restrictions, being able to hear distant conversations with the acoustic sensitivity of an audio telescope. If there are two RAs on the floor, it is almost certain that each will have radically different personalities. My RAs could respectively be described as the "Ying" and the "Yuck." These RAs have enforcement powers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Communication remains one of the most important elements in the relationship between RAs and residents. Photo by Paul Nicosia. During weekdays, most of the time in the dorm is spent sleeping, visiting friends, thinking about doing homework, and sometimes doing homework. During week- nights, most residents stay up all night. During weekends the dorm is often a quiet place depending on whether or not your The character of the RAs range from friendlike to Stalinistic. room happens to be the site of a party or close to the site of the party. If you happen to be blessed by living across from a room of fraternity brothers, you will be in for a night of wandering drunk people, loud head banging music and a unique aroma in the air. If you happen to be a poor sod with a Saturday test, it is guaranteed that the biggest party of the year will happen in the room right next to yours that Friday night. Usually the RAs on the floor attempt to schedule regular activities for their residents. These events depend mainly upon the RAs imagination and interests, (e.g. a tour of the Budweiser factory). Some regular events include a weekly video movie night and a monthly birthday party for those celebrating a birthday. On Fridays, certain dorms have loud hours which allow residents to expend pent up emotions by playing music as loud as possible. Some, like myself, have "mondo" stereo systems, pumping 200 watts per channel with enough bass to find the resonant frequency of every item in gg^gm your room and often the resonant frequency of the RA, who then dulls life by citing people for being too loud during loud mmm^m hours. There is a definite trend among students in relation to dormitory life. Freshman students move into the dorm believing that college life is a retake of Animal House, partying and drinking almost every weekend. As the respective residents mature (or when the first set of grades get mailed home) residents have a tendency to spend more time on their academics and less time on drinking such favorites as trashcan punch or jungle juice. The older residents with cars tend to leave campus in search of a wider range of activities. The attrition rate from dorm residence is quite high for older residents. — Patrick Davis Residence Halls 273
