Resident Advisor, Resident Assistant - In a university residence hall (dorm), an RA is a student leader. They keep order, serve as a resource to residents, organize events, and generally work to maintain a positive living and learning community. Some residents do not like RAs because they see them only as authority figures who get them in trouble for policy violations.
This weekend my RAs are organizing a movie night with the neighboring hall.
Quiet! Hide the beer, it's the RAs!
