A typical day at work depends on you. Everyone is very nice, which makes it difficult to stay moody, we have good laughs and its a space where you can grow yourself.

Working as an RA is a great growing experience and looks good on a resume. You will gain leadership experience, learn time management, how to work with a team and independently, etc. There is also a sense of community within the residence life circle, so there is a lot of support.

However, this job has the ability to consume your life. Nearly every training session (one morning a month) and staff meeting, someone brought up the concept of the “fishbowl”. As an RA we were on constant observation from our residents, coworkers/peers, and management. One of the requirements of the position is to be a good role model, and they’re watching to make sure you are. Additionally, it is often repeated that you’re “always on duty”, you’re always required to be doing your job. You must always be easily accessible. You are required to spend every night sleeping in the house. If you sleep anywhere else, even another house on campus, it counts as a night off. You get 6 nights off a year. This job strips you of your privacy.


The expectations are high. Management has a tendency to focus on the wrong priorities and forget the reality of their community. Generally, they care more about enforcing strict rules than the residents as young adults who need support. Because of the high expectations and strict regulations, along with their inability to get food that doesn’t taste like rubber, staff turnover is high. Back in the day staff apparently stayed for much longer, even moving up to higher positions. Only a scattered few of that generation are left now and most staff only stay for 1 -

Very little opportunity for advancement. Most positions are not refilled as people retire so no new opportunities arise. Pay levels are not consistent with job duties from one level of classification to the next.
Very elitist work culture at times. Obvious distinction between Faculty and Support Staff.

Low staffing in many departments causing very heavy work load for existing staff.
