In case I haven’t mentioned it already…I LOVE ORION! Reason #524: Our staff meetings.
A couple of weeks ago, our Area Coordinator and Graduate Assistants had cheesecake, corn dogs and mini-wraps for us at our staff meeting. Then we were split into groups and competed against one another in a series of competitions. One of the competitions involved making a wedding dress out of toilet paper to see which team could make the best TP wedding dress. I got married that night, obviously.
Then our last recent staff meeting was pretty much ten minutes of housing business stuff then an hour of play and fun! Each week, two RA’s are delegated to create a staff team building activity. So for last week, we did a scavenger hunt where we had to find normal office things like blue tape, housing stuff and then personal things like toothbrush, a skateboard, lightbulb, hanger. We even had to go to an RA’s door, and the dumpster!
We were running up and down the stairs. I was like “lawd there’s the stairs. Then we ran out, we didn’t grab no shoes or nothing, Jesus. I ran for my life and then the stairs got me, I got bronchitis! Ain’t nobody got time for that.”
I am so happy to be here in Orion and I could not ask for a better group of RA’s, GA’s and AC. The Orion staff is like a family to me and they are always there to support and help one another. Our GA’s an AC are always positive and make sure that they are doing everything they can to help us do our jobs! We get the job done and then we have fun! We really are boutdatlife!
