"From when I first took the RA position last spring and up to this point, I have thought more about who I am and what I stand for than ever before. I have discovered more about myself in these past few months and weeks than I have learned since starting my college career. And it's all thanks to the people I have worked with and gotten to know.." -Max, Former Resident Assistant
