I just finished my first freshman semester, I was very involved, and I made a lot of connects with many people in the residence life department. I'm prettymuch guaranteed the position. The benefits include a waived housing fee ($9,000 for the whole year), and a waived meal plan (about $2800 for the whole year.) Plus you're guaranteed asingle (no roomates FTW). So that leaves me like for only $5000 to pay for that year, which is covered by the stafford loan(s). I'm only asking this because I believe it will detract from the cliche "college experience" ....since I do like to get my and on. Being a resident assistant will highly limit my freedom. What do yall think??
