    I worked at University of Kentucky part-time

    Pros

    1. One of the best leadership opportunities on campus
    2. A fantastic residence life department
    3. Perks - Best friends for life and free housing/dining

    Cons

    1. Sometimes, work can pile up. This happens during early Feb when Resident Advisor interviews take place along with Resident Connections.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have much to say because the leadership is already doing a great job but a minor reduction in workload can help students who are graduating, etc.
