You get a free room to yourself, extra spending money great experience, not to mention all of the friends you make. The requirements aren't, on the surface, that hard to fulfill. You have to have a 2.5 and maintain it through out your employment, have lived in the halls at least two semesters, and last but not least take the RA classes. The classes focus on many different aspects of residential life and last a whole semester. They teach them about student development, patterns of development, and how to meet the needs of people from different cultures and backgrounds. Counseling tactics are also taught. They teach the future RAs how far they can go before they should advise professional help. Meditation and roommate conflict resolution is also taught. Since, designing pro grams for their future floors are also apart of their job, they are taught programming skills that use the Wellness Program as a guide. The Wellness Model focuses on several aspects of development such as the physical, emotional, and spiritual well being of the individual. All of this training pays off when RAs are faced by such issues as alcohol / drug abuse, stress, and HIV / Aids. Sandy Colthrap the director of Housing believes that "the one thing and maybe the most important thing that an RA needs to do is care. Unfortunately, that is something we can't teach". Colthrap thinks that the next most important personal qualification has got to be "flexibility because unpredictable emergencies happen". The worst thing that happens to most RAs is that their personal life suffers due to the demands of the job.. -Jennifer Van Akin ^^tudents receive instruction on the ins and outs of being an RA on the third floor of O.B.
