Become a Residential Advisor


If your child is responsible and blessed with good social skills, he or she might want to be an RA. An RA serves as surrogate mother hen to the kids in a dormitory.

Colleges and universities generally reward their RAs, who typically have to be sophomores or upperclassmen, by eliminating or reducing their room and board expenses or tuition.
