Anonymous said: Hi I'm a first year RA and so far a lot of your advice has been really helpful. The thing is though I was assigned to the upperclassmen party building on campus and during training we really didn't do a whole lot of scenarios with confrontation. I was wondering I you have any advice when it comes to confronting large parties or disrespectful residents. This is something that makes me nervous; when I applied to be an RA I expected a freshmen building. Any advice? I could use it! Thanks
Wow! I’m really surprised they would put a first year RA in that kind of setting! Maybe they just know you can handle it! :)
Ok! So the biggest party I’ve ever handled had 47 people, and I was by myself! It sounds scary, but as long as you stay firm and confident, you’ll be fine!
The first step is to set the tone. If you knock on the door sounding quiet and intimidated, the residents are going to walk and talk all over you. This, however, does not mean take a battering ram to the door either! :) Have a strong, confident knock with a voice to match.
Make sure you have solid evidence when confronting residents about a party. The worst thing is saying, “Well I just know you guys are partying.” Listen to everything that is said or sounds that are made. Things like, “Pass me a beer!” or “Take the shot”, glass bottles clinking, etc. The more you have on them, the more they’ll realize that they can’t just talk their way to you letting them go.
Try to be organized! Take your time with your confrontation so you remember all the procedures you have to do. Nothing is worse than forgetting to get a resident’s ID or scrambling to dump the alcohol while writing a report. Remember, you are running the show, don’t let residents try and rush you or intimidate you!
Finally, there will be some residents who are pissed off. It happens, and they only have themselves to blame. NEVER get in an argument with a resident. The second you slip up or show any tiny bit of disrespect, they will use that against you and bring it to your boss. Stay calm, cool, and collected, and try to keep in mind that they most likely are not mad at you, they’re mad that they just dumped $50+ worth of alcohol. Remind them of the housing policies and encourage them to talk with your supervisor during their judicial meeting.
I know this is a lot of information, but I promise it’ll help! Depending on how your school’s policies go about confrontations, you might have “back-up” (your coworker RAs!) If it helps, have a seasoned RA do the first couple of confrontations so that you can watch and learn for yourself when it comes the time for you to take the lead!
Good Luck!! You’ll be great!
