    I am very happy with my experience as an RA and the relationships I developed with my residents, staff and management.

    Resident Assistant (Current Employee)
    Iowa City, IA

    ProsThe benefits of being an RA at Iowa are unheard of elsewhere and if you have a personality that fits the job well it is easy to put in the time that being an RA requires.

    ConsIf you are really interested in changing the way things are done and being extremely innovative this might not be the job for you. The status quo is valued at Iowa.
