    14. 14. Speaking of RAI asked a few RAs to put texting on an importance scale of 1-10 and to addreasoning as well.Emily Metzler (May Hall RA) - Id say it is about an 8. Because it is helpful to contact one another on staffwith questions that can kind of be answered on their own time. With all of the busy schedules it is the easiest way tocommunicate. It is easier than call and leaving a message. It is also easy to send an all staff text if there is something totell/ask all of us.

I did not get texting until I was a sophomore at college and I was always out of the loop. Calling wasan inconvenience for my friends. Texting does not disturb people like calling does. Since you cannot call your friendswhile at the desk, it is nice to have texting to be able to communicate to your friends and family. For being an RA, textinghelps incase you have a question to ask a person and you do not know where they are, or you want to switch duty. It is aquicker way to get a response

If there is something important that our HM needs to let us know, he will send out a txt toeveryone on staff. Its just a really convenient way for us to all keep in touch about inportant stuff when a computer andemail isnt available. For general everyday stuff I dont use it a a lot in terms of the RA position but it comes in really
