R.A.s ALWAYS READY TO HELP There were the ups and downs of the living opportunities at OSU. Each aspect had something good to offer while at the same time didn ' t quite live up to a stu- dent ' s expectations. Those students who had the chance to experience life in a resi- dence had a little bit of the good life as complemented by the guidance of their resident assistants. Commonly known as " R.A.s, " these special people made it a point to help the students living on their floor adjust to any problems or discuss any matters that meant anything to them. " I ' m here to help people relate to one another, build up a comfortable atmo- sphere outside of the class, " said Wilson R.A. John Wentworth. " Whenever any- thing comes up regarding the boys in this hall, I think that it ' s important that I have some personal background on him. " " It ' s a well-respected job, " claimed Christy Gailland, R.A. for Callahan Hall, " and I love working with the students. " The process of becoming a resident as- sistant was not an easy one. Applicants were made to go through two interviews during winter term. The first of these in- terviews involved presentation before a panel including the Hall Director, two resident assistants, and two students who lived in the residence halls. " They asked us questions that could help them get a feel for our personality, " stated Gailland. " They wanted to know how we would go about handling different situations. " The second interview involved getting the prospective R.A.s into groups and seeing how well they performed certain tasks. " It was an exercise that showed the ways we functioned as a group, " ex- plained Gailland. " They wanted to know how well we could work together. " Once qualifying for the position, stu- dents were required to take a Resident Leadership and Training class offered only spring term. A great deal of preparation was re- quired to finally be a resident assistant. Classes in CPR, First Aid, and counseling were a necessity and many workshops on communication and time management were taken advantage of. " It definitely helps out with my com- munication skills, which is a must in the field of study I ' m pursuing now, but most- ly I think having all of this responsibility has helped me learn how to organize my time and myself, " he said. Gailland, who was inspired by her R.A. sister to look into the program, felt that the experience related to her area of study, elementary education, as well. " The students here aren ' t children, " Gailland noted, " but the responsibilities and disciplinary action we come across make this job a lot like a teaching job. The big difference is that it ' s 24 hours a day! " " It ' s rewarding to see friendships grow, " Wentworth acknowledged. " That means that people are comfortable enough to start building something that lasts. " Benefits were countless in this job and the lucky students that were allowed to gain from the knowledge and experience of their resident assistants were clear on how much of a good thing Oregon State housing could be.
