Watch Oxy talk about Point Neamo.
Students have been working on creating a tour of the campus. The students research each building and area on campus and came up with a paragraph about what is important to know. The last few weeks students have been walking around campus and recording each area. Next week we will be starting the editing process. Check back in a few weeks to see their final product.
Robert is a DRIVE student that is really interested in learning more about becoming and R.A. To learn more about the job Robert has been interviewing the R.A.’s on campus. Below is the interviews Robert has been working on.
R.A. Interview with Elizabeth Vinelte
Q: What building do you work in?
A: I am a Resident Assistant in Blyley but I also do rounds in Harrington
Q: What is your favorite part of being an R.A.?
A: I like meeting new people and getting to know more about them. I really enjoy building a community in our halls and helping residents to live happy and productive lives on campus.
Q: What are some things you do in your job?
A: I do rounds when I am on duty, I help people when they have conflicts with their roommates or other people in the hall. I enforce the college rules in order to keep our students safe and I put on programs in an effort to help build communities.
Q: Tell me about your upcoming events.
A: The other R.A.s and I are putting together an Occupational Therapy program that will show students certain activities that will help individuals develop cognitive and mentor skills.
Interview with Alica Wimmers
The RA I interviewed was Alica Wimmers. She is an RA in Harrington and Blyley (Barrington). Alica said her favorite part about being an RA is “making friends with people I may not have otherwise gotten to know, such as Resident Life employees, campus safety, and my residents!” Some things she does in her job is doing active rounds and attend RA in services. But possibly the most important part of what she does is building community within my residence halls by keeping her door open and talking with residents. Some of her upcoming events are an OT “Fun and Functional” program with Liz and Heather during which they’ll do fun activities to promote professional skills. She is also working on setting up a program to take some residents to one of my roller derby bouts.
