I am Amanda. I go to Wilkes University and I am a Nursing Major. I also just recently became a resident assistant. This is just a place for me to put my ideas and share my experience.
How I feel when I’m trying to get a resident excited for a program
So the first night of rounds started off with a bang!
Realizing how many residents I have to check out during finals week
Its so sad that this year is coming to an end!
This is so bittersweet! I am going to miss all of my residents next year! I had an amazing group of students that taught me that being an RA is just about following the rules and enforcing them. Its about the lives that you touch, the smiles that you receive from residents when you brightened their bad day, and the feeling when they tell you how great of a year they had with you!
I am really going to miss my residents this year and the building I am in now. But next year I will be in an all first year hall, with new faces. And I can’t wait to see what unfolds there. I hope next year is even better than this year!
