Being an RA (Resident Assistant) is a crazy job, and decorating a bulletin board is one of the many responsibilities they have. As an RA I know firsthand the whirlwind of activities that must be balanced. Although it may seem passé in comparison to discipline or programming, bulletin boards are just as important a responsibility. They are a simple way to create a classy statement on your floor. Bulletin boards constantly change and sometimes it can seem impossible to come up with a new idea. CL has tips and ideas to help my fellow RAs and classy co-eds!
Things to use:
- Your school’s logo and sports team
- Welcomes and farewells: I find farewells to be incredibly special. My residents my first year got very close. Leaving them with a message like this made their goodbye to each other and myself bittersweet and memorable:
- Popular culture
- Quotes: Quotes that are meaningful, empowering, sassy and funny make good statement boards.
