Your RA has been hired and trained to be your in-hall support and resource. Part of your RA's responsibility is to develop a relationship with each resident on his/her floor and meet with the resident individually. Your RA will meet with you periodically to discuss your experiences and progress at UNLV.
These one-on-one conversations are an opportunity for you to share your ideas and concerns for the floor and complex, to open up about difficulties you may be having, or to get advice from someone who most likely has shared some of your concerns about the collegiate experience.
Once classes get underway, your RA will reach out to you to schedule a time to meet that is convenient for both of you.
