Sitting in the back of the room, laptop on, shooting off emails as two returning Resident Assistants present to their colleagues about successful campus programming. In this moment I am reminded of the spirit that our students leaders bring to campus. Their energy is absolutely infectious, and the reasons that I chose to be an RA so many years ago flood my mind like it were yesterday.

This is a moment to be mindful that the eager mind of a student leader lives somewhere in every one of us! To look upon training anew, to see it again with the eyes of a first-timer, brings back all of the excitement of having been there several years ago and is refreshing, almost cleansing!

We are lucky to get to work with such great students, and this is a privilege that we do not take for granted!
