Why You Should Go to Your RA’s Programs

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Xavier chapter.


If you are one of those people who think that RA programs are super lame events that are only for helping first-year students get to know each other, then I’m here to convince you otherwise! RA programs are free, fun, and a great way to get to know other people in your residence hall, no matter how long you’ve been living on-campus. 




RA programs encompass literally anything: crafts, games, movies, music, conversations, and more. An RA program can even get you off-campus to the Zoo, to a park, to go pottery painting, or to see a play. RA Programs can also expand your horizons from the comfort of your floor lounge by introducing you to new activities, like planting a succulent, making a meal, discussing a new topic, or meeting a new person. 




Are you too cool to have fun? I didn’t think so. Branch out and go to your RA’s program! You won’t regret the connections you make or the things you learn, or, let’s be honest, the free food. Like every aspect of college, you get out of RA programs what you put in.
