Joanne- Levy-Prewitt’s belief that public services are necessary for college is an optimistic point of view and is really useful. In her column “College Bound: A Weekly Guide to Higher Education” she discuss on why public services is required in schools for College when she spoke to Yates a CEO of California Wellness Foundation, he states it would “..reduce teen crime and improve their wellness.” Joanne believes it will help colleges choose more responsible and mature young adults but is concerned on how requiring community service would affect the work force and GDP of the economy. "What will happen to our economic workforce if all young adults go into public service between high school and college or work?" Joanne uses an analytical and
As well obtain two awards one for the “Unsung Hero Award” from Student Life and “RA of the Year Award” present by Russell, Natalie, and Jason from Residential Life. As that year came to a close I was constantly asking Russell what my next step was and he told me wait another year as an RA and try to become head resident. It will give you the motivation and also help you in your future life as a manager. This is why I decided to peruse my application and explaining why I am motivated for the job. Head resident will give me the last piece I need to complete my wonderful journey in Residential Life and College career.
Serving as a Resident Assistant is a position that requires leadership. This campus needs more leadership from students. There is a lack of energy in this school. Events are put on, and are organized well, but there is no leadership from students to show up or to announce them. As an RA, I would make sure everyone in my hall knows about upcoming events. This is important because the more people who know, the more will show up. Once students begin to show up to events, the more unity we have as a culture.
I am writing to express my strong desire for a Resident Assistant position at La Salle University. I am a freshman honors student pursuing a dual Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and ISBT. I want to become a bigger part of the La Salle family and apply my creativity
A Watchful Eye Down the Hall: Surveillance in Student Residence Living in student housing offers multiple benefits including a drastically reduced commute time and the opportunity to live with a cohort of students facing similar social and educational challenges. Another cited benefit is that a Resident Assistant, or what I know as a Community Advisor (CA) monitors every building. The CA acts as a guide, facilitator, and watchful eye over the student residents while they live their year out in one of many residence buildings. I am a CA in an older residence building, Olympus Hall, which was originally constructed for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics as part of the Olympic Village.
(1) When I think of the resident advisor position I consider it a position of great responsibility. This reason is because as a RA one is responsible for the safety of not just the people on their hall, but also the people in the entire building. One has to efficiently do room inspections to make sure people don’t possess things that could cause fires, or anything else that might endanger the other people living within that residents hall. They are there to inform residents on changes or upcoming events happening within that resident’s hall and on campus. Other responsibilities I think about being associated with the RA position is letting people in their room when they are locked out, and helping residents get aquatinted with each other.
Managing forty-plus students is not a task, especially if they are college students. In every residential hall at University of California Riverside there are residential advisors. Residential advisors are students that are responsible for a hall and the residents that live there. Their overall duties include hall maintenance, being on duty, keeping a good relationship with residents, caring for themselves, setting up the hall calendar along with events and being on good academic standing. What being on duty means is that the residential advisor that is on duty must go through every hall and check the emergency exit door at the end of the hall and turn off the hall lights. However, that not the only thing that they do, they also make sure
6. I would try to balance the conflicting roles of being a peer and a RA by not rubbing it in other residents faces that I have higher power then them. I would act just the same as any other person living in the hall. I would only take my power into hands when situations come up that I need to step up and be in a higher position than just a normal resident. It is important to have rules and regulations in the residence halls become you need rules to keep everything flowing smoothly. Without rules, it would be a zoo and nobody would be able to sleep or study for anything. The rules of the halls are just to make sure we have a safe living place and nobody gets hurts while going to school. A lot of things can happen if we don’t enforce the rules
From the moment the new chapter is established, we expect the charter members to uphold the values and mission of our organization. All charter members will be expected to complete the New Member Experience in order to be Initiated. This is the same requirement for all new members across the entire organization. From the beginning, charter members are assigned to various committees so they begin to understand chapter operations and officer responsibilities. The committee system ensures all chapter members have a voice and the opportunity to contribute to chapter operations. Prior to Installation, charter members are expected to hold officer elections. This is an important first step to becoming a self-governing chapter. Following Installation, the chapter is expected to work with the two resident Chapter Consultants, local advisers and the rest of the New Chapter Support Team to execute the Five-Year New Chapter Support Plan to become a fully functioning chapter. 6. Housing expectations: Indicate housing expectations of the University. Include plan for acquiring housing We are dedicated to providing new chapters with the assistance they need, especially concerning housing. To ensure chapter unity, growth, and future success with Recruitment, securing the right type of housing is crucial. Upon receiving an invitation to make a presentation at ISU, we will begin the process of identifying a chapter facility. We will work with the university, the town of Normal and local
A Resident Assistant lives on the same floor as their residents and assists them in any way needed. For example, a resident may be going through some personal struggles and doesn’t know who to talk to, but they can turn to their RA to talk. Another thing on the job description is to make programs specifically for their residents that can be educational and influential. Applying for this position was a very rigorous and competitive process, but I was able to leave a lasting impression and is now hired as an RA for the 2017-2018 academic year. This leadership position will continue my goal to make sure the residents feel welcome and safe in the environment they live in, while also making a personal connection with each individual.
As a junior involved in housing, I have worked with many residence hall leaders. Subsequently, I often struggle to find someone who is assertive, kind, responsible, and innovative in his/her role. In my opinion, Madison Alexander is a leader exemplifies not only. Madison is a senior Political Science and Economics Major as well as a History minor. Outside of a rigorous course load, she has been a Resident Advisor for two years, as well as aOTM chair and NRHH Conference Chair for two years. Prior to being a Resident Advisor, Madison served on two community governments which were extremely successful. Most recently, she was awarded a 4-year service pin at NCARH 2017 Conference. This pin acknowledges undergraduate students who have shown dedication to serving residence halls for four years. Based on Madison’s leadership and dedication to residence halls, I am nominating Madison Alexander for the Robert White Linker Award.
I will bring determination, a sense of community, and advocacy for TWU residents and collaboration. Being in RHA will take a lot of responsibility. I will come up with event ideas that will broaden horizons, grow a sense of community, and enhance residents experience on campus. I will advocate for
Introduction: Over the past two decades, the issue of diversity has gained growing share and momentum in the overall literature of postsecondary education. The expansion and diversification of the total make-up of students across US colleges and universities has brought about new dimensions to the pool of subjects tackled under the umbrella of diversity. Relevant studies show that the environment on campus have an impact on students’ learning outcome (Astin, 1984), their academic performance (Tieu et al, 2009) and sense of belonging and engagement (Thompson and Caseo 2012, Zuniga et al. 2005, Bowman 2012). Creating an inclusive climate that accommodate the diverse sociocultural orientations of students empowers the institution in the first place and provides one of the core causes of success.
The purpose of this research is to objectively identify the various flaws of the College Ranking system and find practical solutions to improve the methodology of College Rankings. I researched data from numerous articles and found a general consensus among scholars that: 1) there is no such thing as a perfectly objective college ranking methodology. 2) The two most popular college ranking systems: US news, and Forbes have profoundly misguided college ranking methodology. 3) Due to the market of Supply And Demand College rankings fill a strong consumer demand for information about institutional quality, and as such, are here to stay for the foreseeable future. Furthermore, a majority of authors offered different ways to communicate the same
