Q: In what ways do you intentionally make efforts to support student success through your role as a Resident Advisor (RA)?
A: As a senior, I’m in a position where I can reflect on my time at Duke and give advice to my freshman residents on how to have a successful and fun college career. And that’s what I do! I try to make myself available to foster these conversations, whether it be through reminding them that I’m here for them or through hosting casual events in the dorm that bring me and them together.
