Brenna Innocenzi: ARD (Assistant Resident Director)

Posted -

Brenna Innocenzi is a senior at Ohio University, studying Exercise Physiology with a minor in Business and Biology. She is also the ARD (Assistant Resident Director) in Adams Hall!

1. Q: How long have you been involved in RA life?     A: This is my second year in resident and housing life.

2. Q: What made you want to join?     A: I wanted to join because I loved helping people in the tutoring center, and decided I wanted to help people with more than just academics. I also didn't have the money to pay for off campus housing and wanted to get a job that could help pay for my housing.

3. Q: What’s your favorite part?     A: My favorite part is when I realize that I had an effect on someone. Once, a resident bought me food to thank me for something that was little to me but big to them.  

4. Q: What’s your least favorite part and how do you deal with that? A: The worst part is when you have to confront a resident for disciplinary actions. I try to tell my residents to be smart and not put time in that situation because no one likes to get people in trouble.

5. Q: What advice would you give to an incoming ARD/RA?     A: Get to know your staff and really bond. They'll become your best friends, and tend to be the nicest and most helpful people on campus.
