Move in Weekend: We Worked, We Conquered, We Survived

by Dylan Ruffra

It is great to see all the hard work your resident assistants are doing pay off. Over the past three weeks they have been in training learning how to best meet the roles of their position. During training they have also been making sure that our building is 100% ready for move in. For my resident assistant this has not been easy process. Making sure that everything is ready requires a lot of time and needs to be as accurate as possible. I was very impressed with how fast my team was able to accomplish the many task that I gave them.

As it came to the actual move in day, the Walsh team had to be prepared to check over two hundred people into our building. This was an activity that was going to require all hands on deck and a team effort. When we opened our building, there was already a line of about fifteen students waiting to check in. This is where putting their skills into action from training really came in handy. With each person that came in they were able to provide them with great customer service and make sure they got checked in properly. My team was able to keep the check-in process going smoothly and stop from any disasters from coming.

From this check-in process it made me learn to not stress over the small things. As soon as I woke up on the morning of check-in, I could already feel my heart pounding. I was so nervous about all the things that could go wrong. I was playing all these if scenarios in my head, when in all reality almost none of them happened. As I was going throughout the day I started to realize that there was nothing to stress about. I knew that I had been prepared by my superiors to answer any questions and help in any way possible. In the end, I knew that my team and I would execute everything properly and make sure every resident was happy in their room. When I was working with my team for check-ins during the day, I realized I did not need to stress and just believe everything was going to go as smoothly as possible.
