Pros: community development, leadership opporunity, teamwork, responsibility, time management
Over the past 4 years, I've had a great opportunities to work with many different personalities and people in the Housing and Residential Education office at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, Over that time, I've worked with 7 different Resident Directors, who work as the supervisor of a college dorm. I've also worked with 30+ different Resident Assistants who are responsible for the well being of the student and the community policies. Every year brought about a new staff and for me, brought a new way of interacting with people and getting to know different personalities. Working at this University brought about no difficult challenges besides having to to see the student the next day after having documented them for a policy violation. Some student would hold a grudge and other would understand that they did something from. The best part, besides working with new coworkers, was having the chance the help out student in the community. When students had issues in their personal life, roommamtes, or academics, I was responsible for helping them out and pointing them in the right direction.
