Transcript Best In The Halls Many incoming students agonized over the disappointing grade on their first college examination. "That's where RA's come in; they were there to help residents cope with their problems, took time out to listen and motivated individuals with monthly group activities," said Rass Papish. RA selection consisted of three categories applicants must meet. "The applicants must have administrative and organizational skills. They should be friendly, sincere, energetic and committed. Leadership experience from jobs or clubs also help the individual explain how that relates to being an RA," said David Mullen. Applicants must have lived in the residence halls for two semesters among other things. Evaluators are usually hall directors, area coordinators and professional staff members. "The qualities to being a good RA depends on the individual's willingness to work with people. Our job is a cross between floor mom, guidance counselor, entertainment director, and policeman," said Margaret May. "Programming is an important part of being a good RA, but different floors have different needs and an RA must learn to accommodate with each individual's need," said Paul Hoglund. Administrators then give their approval and the process is completed. -Thao Vuong RA interviews were conducted by Marjorie Goodman. Fran Ind, an RA for Taub Hall, was chosen as RA of the Month for the month of September 1989. The 26-year-old HRM graduate was on the tennis team for four years and assistant coach for a year. Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Fran learned about UH when a fellow tennis player attending the university returned to South Africa for the summer. Fran says that being an RA gives her a chance to program functions for her floor, which she enjoys. Vali Karimi, was the RA for the seventh floor in the north Tower. The 25-year-old electrical engineering senior tried to create an atmosphere of respect among the residents. "I 've created an environment, a friendly atmosphere on the floor," Vali said. Vali said he also encouraged his residents to look forward to meeting other residents and to become friends. Vali's other campus activities included membership in the Pakistan Student's Association and IEEE. Margaret May, an RA for the third floor in Bates Hall, tried to encourage her residents to get involved with each other and encouraged them to get involved with school activities. "We try to do lots of little things on the floor to get people to come out of their rooms and meet people. We try to get them to do stuff together,' she said. A program she coordinated was on alcohol awareness. Margaret was a senior history major and was also involved in the Bates Hall Building Association. Lee Flemming, an RA in Bates Hall, got his residents involved and working together in order to create a sense of community. "I had a program to build community during Black History Month. It was a program that involved my whole floor," he said. Lee was born in Corpus Christi and was a junior majoring in political science. He was also the Vice-President for the Students' Association. He tried, with each function, to get his residents involved. 168 REI Residence HallfT/^QE
