Now that students around the country are returning to college after winter break, it may behoove those in student services (or those with a young person who is attending college) to take a look at this helpful site. Designed specifically with resident assistants (RAs) in mind, the site contains over 2,300 pages of residence life materials including programming ideas, icebreakers, and articles on a host of different topics. There are also a number of articles that impart advice for new RA's, including those on common mistakes, keys to success, and planning successful trips for students under their charge. One particularly helpful feature is the "Ask the Experts" section, where persons seeking answers to residential life questions can pose their questions online, or review previously answered questions about community building, dealing with students who may have a substance abuse problems and so on.
