It’s almost time to welcome new members to the Residence Life staff! On Feb. 1, prefect applications are due, and applicants may be starting to feel the pressure of their upcoming interviews. This time last year I was an applicant and had tons of questions of my own, so I figured, now with almost a year of ResLife under my belt, I’d give an inside look into what we do and ease your nerves going into this exciting, yet intimidating process. If you’re torn whether to apply or not, stick around and let’s see if I can spark your interest!
Freshman year of college. We met A LOT of people at once. It was honestly overwhelming! Trying to find your place and establish new friends at a new school. Some people came to college with their friends or at least knew some names on campus, while others were completely lost and had to seek out friends on their own. No matter which of those categories you fall under, everyone seeks new friendships and wants to connect with others outside their circle.
