Local Student Selected To Serve As Resident Assistant At Tech
Chris Fischer of Sidney, Neb., has been selected to serve as a Resident Assistant at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology for the 2001- 2002 school year. Fischer is a Interdisciplinary Sciences major at Tech.
South Dakota Tech’s Department of Residence Life provides on- campus dormitories for almost 500 students. Resident Assistants are the foundation of the residence life system. Their job is to promote a spirit of unity and an atmosphere conducive to study. Fischer will do that by helping create an environment that allows all students to succeed in and out of the classroom. Being a Resident Assistant provides students with opportunities to challenge themselves while helping others do the same.
Maureen “ Reeny” Wilson, assistant director of Residence Life, said serving as a Resident Assistant 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."
