“Lead now so that others will lead later!”
At Rollins, you are not just a number; you are part of a community. We are built on the strengths and talents of all our students because Rollins is where students become strong, successful men and women. Rollins is where students excel in the classroom and learn to excel in life; Rollins is where leaders are made.
There is no bigger calling and no better way to show that you are a leader than to help others. The Office of Residential Life is looking for leaders who want to help their fellow students; we are looking for you!
As a Resident Assistant (RA), you will gain immeasurable amounts of leadership experience. RAs also have the opportunity to help others, and to educate and learn from your residents and your fellow RAs. You have the opportunity to make outstanding educational programs for your residents and become connected to your community.
Benefits include a cash stipend and housing at a great rate. Moreover, you will gain leadership skills, connections to other departments on campus, and, most of all, the ability to help your fellow students.
Stating your work as an RA is a wonderful addition to a resume. You will become part of a family that will last way beyond your time at Rollins, with experiences and memories that will last the rest of your life. And you will have left a legacy of serving and giving others the chance to become leaders too. This is an opportunity that you simply cannot pass up.
This is your future and this is your campus. We are looking for leaders and we are looking for you. It is time: Lead now so that others will lead later!
Mary Neville ’13 shares her experiences with Residential Life. “Being an RA has really shown me the value of leadership. I have learned so much about myself and my character and how I influence my peers from the lessons that ResLife has taught me.
“The department has inspired me to reach further and work harder as well as strengthened my values of trust, honesty, and optimism. Even after the McKean fires my motivation never wavered, it strengthened,” she said.
Briana Angelo ‘13 also highlights her experience with Residential Life. “Being an RA has been a great personal and mental test.
“Through the challenges that I have faced, I have grown stronger both as a leader and a person. I have earned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses; I’ve learned how to utilize them to become a better person,” she said.
