Writing for The Ubyssey

Writing and being involved with the Ubyssey has been such a great experience and has given me a really good view of what is happening on campus and has given me a chance to learn a new way of writing and professionalism.

Residence advising

My role as a residence advisor has been very fulfilling and full of learning, even though it has been challenging at times. I decided to apply to be an RA last year after talking with my RA about it. She encouraged me to apply and I did, because I look up to her and I hoped that I would be able to help contribute to a great first year experience for first years the next year. I was (and still am) so happy that I got the job!

I have learned a lot about how to plan events that would appeal to first year university students, who can be a bit of a difficult crowd to appeal to. I have also learned how to work in a team of other residence advisors to build a community within the house, as well as how to manage my time between all of my work in rez life and my academics. That has certainly been a challenge, but I think I’m improving upon it as well.

Here are some pictures of me doing things with my residents!
