“My favorite thing about living on campus is staying connected with my peers, faculty, and campus activities. Living on campus creates a sense of community that allows people of all different backgrounds to live in the same space and grow together. It's like having a bunch of roommates that become your family. As a resident assistant, my passion is to harvest this growth between residents and allow them to realize their potential and the potential of others. This type of support system cannot be found anywhere else.”
