RA Recommendation: 2013-2014

Dear Recommendation Writer: Thank you for taking the time to assist our office in the Resident Advisor selection process. The RA position is one of leadership, trust, responsibility, and resourcefulness. It requires excellent interpersonal skills. Each RA contributes greatly to the welfare, personal growth, and everyday success of the students with whom they work. Your written comments are very helpful; please provide specific examples, observations, and descriptions in each area. The comments which you offer will be utilized solely for the purpose of selecting Resident Assistants and will be read by the Selection Committee composed of several students and the Deans. Completed recommendations must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, February 6, 2013 in order to receive consideration. Please contact Rachel Head (rhead1@swarthmore.edu) if you have any questions regarding the RA selection process. Due Date: Wednesday, February 6, 2013 Thank you for your help and feedback.

RAs are among the most visible student leaders on campus and serve many different functions. An RA must act as a counselor to residents (both new students and upperclassmen), be friendly and approachable, organize formal and informal social events, help mediate disagreements, and bring energy and enthusiasm to the residential experience.
