Rosa Serrano is today’s Summer Housing Assistant in the spotlight! Rosa is not new to the position as this is her third summer working as a SHA. Meeting new people and talking to the snowbirds on campus are Rosa’s favorite parts of the job and keep her returning to the position each year.
“After three summers here I enjoy seeing people summer after summer. It’s always nice to have a good conversation with them,” Rosa said.
Being a SHA allows students to keep busy by holding multiple positions within the office which is a big factor in what makes the job fun.
“I really enjoy the job and I feel like there’s always something going on,” Rosa said. “There’s never a dull day since we do a lot of different things and take on a number of roles during the summer.”
During her three years as a SHA, Rosa said organization was one big thing she has learned.
“I have learned to keep myself organized to keep a balance between being a SHA and my personal life,” Rosa said.
With three year of on-campus living under her belt, Rosa said her favorite part of living on campus is “the ease of being close to everything and just the sense of community we have here.”
Thank you, Rosa, for all the hard work you do for Residence Life!
