Dear Residents: WHY?
luigim227: This week I put up a new sign by the recycling box that said we are unable to recycle Gatorade, Snapple, and Naked Juice bottles because they are not returnable. I checked the box today.

rymat: I got a text today from a student saying how thankful he is that I vouched for his behaviour after he was in danger of being kicked out of res. It was the first recognition I’ve received all year and it felt so good. Although my students have been a lot of trouble this year, I really do love them and they’ve influenced me to continue on the RLS journey. THANKS GUYS.

An RA's Perspective of Community →
backtrack3d: My university is putting on a “Social Media Week” this week. As part of that, I am taking part in BlogFest, where I am given a prompt each day and have to write a blog associated to the prompt. Today’s prompt was community. As a second year RA, I decided to blog about what community means from the perspective of an RA!

Tyler Clementi post
Hi, (Please keep my tumblr anonymous if you choose to post my response— I’m actually forbidden to talk about this case as a member of University Res Life staff. I can talk as an individual, but if I talk as a RA, my job is on the line.) I am actually a RA where the Tyler Clementi incident took place. It understandably shook up a lot of our 200+ Res Life staff members. However, what the...
Res Life Lamentations: Tyler Clementi →
reslifelamentations: News stories about the trial of his roommate made me stop and realize…Tyler Clementi lived on campus…he was somebody’s resident.
