I believe genuine service is the best thing you can dedicate your life to and that is the primary reason I chose to become a resident advisor (RA). After my career as a state FFA officer came to a close I searched for a new way to impact my community and serve those around me. When I came across the RA position there was no better opportunity that fit the bill! I went through the application and interview process and at the end of my sophomore year in spring 2012, I was hired as an RA in Scott House.
I moved to the third floor of Norton House for the 2012-2013 academic year. Since then my life has been a whirlwind! I have almost 50 residents living on my floor and I am responsible for decorating, planning programs, handling roommate issues, and making sure everyone is following OSU housing policy. Although being an RA is my job, I have developed sincere friendships with those living on my floor. I have had the opportunity to be a role model for them, but they have also impacted me in ways I can’t describe. From movie nights, to late night chats, to having family dinners, we have become nothing less than family to each other.
