I decided to become an RA at Carnegie Mellon University in my senior year – that’s right – in my final year of college. The reason why I wanted to do this was simply because I wanted to provide guidance and enhance the experience of freshmen who resided at Donner Hall.
Yes, Donner Hall isn’t the greatest place at CMU, but it was an all-freshman dorm. Each floor was separated by gender. Now, this was about 15 or so years ago, so things may have changed. Regardless, the community aspect of Donner Hall was spectacular! The freshmen were wonderful to be around, and it was neat to experience the helping hand to the new class.
I fully support anybody who decides to become an RA at Carnegie Mellon University! Comment below, and I’ll provide any other information/comments back to you regarding the RA and/or freshman dorm experience!
