Transcript ***74e PeoflU 7V6* T>Oiect Ocvt J,ive&m K VrCitch Rhodes, a senior math major, has been in the halls five years. He was currently Hall Director for South Tower when I met up with him. Being a Hall Director, according to Mitch, was as different from being an RA as " the moon is to the sun". He explained there was more responsibility and less contact with the residents but the residents you did come into contact with were the troublemakers. Mitch cited an example where some guys decided to "redecorate the bathroom with glass" from the light bulbs that once hung in the bathroom . While Mitch found his work rewarding he explained that he sometimes got tired of being at work all the time because Hall Directors "rarelyhave time to themselves". In the future Mitch planned to make "academia" his career and perhaps become president of the university one day. Rhodes commented that he wouldn't wish his job on anyone; "but you'll never have a better experience without being forced into it." -Jennifer Van Akin ^isa Russell, a senior HRM major had benefited greatly from her two years as a Hall Director. The Hilton Corporation had already offered her a standing position when she graduates. Russell decided to take the position as a way of gaining experience in her major and to pay her way through school. She explained that the position taught her leadership, management, as well as supervisory skills. It also allowed her to participate in a giant microcosm of culture. As a result Russell had acquired numerous friends in the international community. The duties that most disturbed Russell involved disciplinary hearings. The strangest two she had ever sat on involved a "streaker" and a "girl's fist fight." "There is always the element of the unexpected, that's the tuffest thing", said Russell. The unexpected doesn't seem to have shaken her one bit. This capable young lady seemed to wear responsibility very well. -Jennifer Van Akin /hird Floor Taub: Karla Steinmeiek, Lauren DeRoberts, Tory Graf, Brian Quick, Dana Hickman, Mike Warfield, Charles Chandler, Tom Sawyer, Maggie Kniery, Molly Kniery, Kim Scrbo rough, Dorthy Robinson, Chuck Farley, Dick Johnsen, John Covey, Eric Moya, Stuart Ford, Mike Hunt, Homeless Person, Richard Pinkston, Heather Bonser, Danielle Amato, Justine Fields, Matthew Mucker, Robert Hotman, Mike Luka, Jerry Preston.

Shabat felt that in some ways being a Hall Director was a little bit easier than being an RA because "Directors don't have to deal with the students on a day to day basis". The clause to this however, was that you often deal with " the bad kids" more. The most painful aspect of the added responsibility was the "hiring and firing". One of the tuffest cases Shabat ever had to handle was one in which a resident was caught with drugs and still refused to admit their guilt. The administration, in Shabat's opinion, was sometimes "not as expedient as it should have been" in these cases. "The position is basically what you make of it," commented Shabat. "If you put in one-hundred percent you will reek the benefits, of course, there are those who get away with doing very little, but they reek very little". -Jennifer Van Akin JrCa]da Timini, is pursuing a MBA in Business and a Medical Technology degree. This thirty-one tear old ambitious woman had been a director for a year and felt that "everyone should apply" for the position. "You learn such valuable tools as leadership, teamwork, how to handle pressure, and interpersonal skills. "You emerge well-rounded. Your in-service training alone is so challenging". Timini has had to handle a lot of rough things bu t the one incident that stood out in her mind was particularly bizarre. She got a call from the housing office about a resident whose mother had died. It was Timini's job to tell the resident. She got to the room and told the person in the room without identifying them first. The resident proceeded to laugh and Timini assumed that the resident was in shock. Finally the resident explained that thatwas impossible because she had just left her mother; Majda had told the wrong resident. Difficult situations made even more difficult by nervous decisions. -Jennifer Van Akin ^>econd and Third Floors Oberholtzer: Catherine De Fauw, Julie Cooney, Thu Nguyen, Dolph Chaney, Shana Ferguson, Melody Borman, Scott Newman, Marielle McLaughlin, Rachel Edison, Anna Beth Brownlee, Beth McConnell, Elizabeth Kendall, Scott Winkler, John Murdock, Luis de Rivas, Christine Caron.
