Working as a Resident Advisor wasn't always easy, but it was well worth the experience. In a typical day I really didn't need to worry too much. I was able to have the freedom to go out at night with my friends, time to do my homework, and be there for my residents.
Through this job, I learned how to manage my time between personal pleasures and work, how to create, manage, design, and advertise for educational programs, and how to ask for help on situations that I found too large for me to handle.
I will say that the hardest part of the job is finding a way to control residents when they get rowdy and confronting co-workers when I thought some of the things they did were inappropriate. But the best part of the job was the socialization and learning about myself through learning about my residents.
