TWO LOCAL STUDENTS SERVE AS RESIDENT ASSISTANTS AT SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOL OF MINES & TECHNOLOGY
Krystal Kubas of Rapid City and Lindsy Christensen of Black Hawk have served as Resident Assistants in Dake Hall at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology during the 1999- 2000 school year. Kubas is a sophomore at Tech, working toward a degree in industrial engineering. She recently won the Outstanding Programmer award for her work on Dake Hall activities. Christensen, a freshman at Tech, is working toward a degree in interdisciplinary science.
The Department of Residence Life at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology provides on- campus living opportunities to almost 500 students. Promoting a spirit of unity and an atmosphere conducive to study, Resident Assistants are the foundation of the residence life system at Tech. As Resident Assistants, Kubas and Christensen help create an environment in which all students can succeed in and out of the classroom. Being a Resident Assistant provides individuals with many opportunities to challenge themselves while helping others do the same.
Maureen “ Reeny” Wilson, Assistant Director for Residence Life for Leadership, feels that a Resident Assistant position is good training for life. " Being a leader in today's business world means more than just having authority,” she said. “ A leader must also possess the ability to work together in a team and solve problems through a group effort. The Residence Life department gives Resident Assistants the opportunity to experience leadership from many facets-- with fellow RAs, with the students on their floors, and with university staff and administration."
