I am a senior here at SLU and I have been a part of the community assistant team for three years now. For those three years I have been working with first year students. For the most part, all of our students have the same first year. They do their best to find friends, join clubs, and do well academically. On their way they have many questions and seek advice from upper class students.
As their CA, who lives with them, I do my best to answer their questions and to help them find answers. I help them contact professors if needed, or other resources to ensure that all of them perform to the best of their ability. Our team of CAs, myself included, form a strong and resourceful network for all our students. It is my personal goal to see all my residents flourish.
