Please go to Gampel or somewhere else to watch the game. Midnight quiet hours still apply here, so responsibly go nuts elsewhere. I’m on duty tonight and it’s going to be stressful, so please don’t to push it on our floor. There are going to be a lot of RA’s and police around North, if I wasn’t an RA I would personally stay away from here tonight.
In the end, remember that the only reason you care about the game is:
a.) because they’re wearing a UConn uniform
b.) you want an excuse to go wild
If it’s the first one, you’re cheering for laundry. Get excited if you want, but it’s nothing worth getting in trouble for. If it’s the second one, be as far away from me as possible tonight. I will not appreciate being disrespected over the outcome of a basketball game. I’ve done all I can to respect you and your privacy since August, please reciprocate this respect and be civil on our floor.
While you might get caught up in tonight, please remember that the night will eventually end. And no matter what the basketball team does, I’m still going to be your RA for another month.
So have fun, but not too much fun.
Check out this email from some guy UConn RA. Dude has no school spirit.
h/t Michael M. also
If there’s not a 1000 person riot outside of RA Derek’s dorm room in North tonight I’m going to be personally offended. Borderline impossible to send a more out of touch email than this. It’s college bro. Lighten the fuck up.
So someone took the email I sent Saturday to heart and decided to Tweet it, so I’d like to clarify:
-I was trying to come off on the strict side so our floor wouldn’t be vandalized. That has been a problem here in the past (and was a problem Saturday night again) and could end in us getting an extra fee. That’s really the only point I was trying to get across, the rest was sarcasm.
-The laundry comment is a joke from Seinfeld. Next time I’ll include a link so you know that I’m kidding. We cheer for clothes
-If you think I’m being condescending in an email, call me on it. That’s not how I view my position and I was just trying to keep your shenanigans outside (where you are less likely to get in trouble).
Please address me the way I address you when there is a problem (mostly passive aggressive emails), as I could have explained that 90% of what I said was sarcasm and 10% was a plea to not have to document any of you guys. Could you really imagine me saying “be as far away from me as possible” to any of you? If you can, let me know. We clearly have not had enough bonding time for you to get my sense of humor.
But now it’s on the internet, so thanks.
Derek (“arguably the worst RA in UConn history”)
