Tales From the RA Vault: People in Glass Study Rooms......Shouldn't take off their clothes.
So for those of you who are new(ish) to this blog a long long time ago in a galaxy far away I was a resident advisor in college. Okay that long long time ago was 2005-2006 and the galaxy far away was North Carolina, but whatever those are minor details. Anyways every once and awhile (typically when I run out of interesting things to say about my life) I will dig a story out of the RA vault to tell. This story didn't happen to me, but to a fellow RA that I knew.
So we had several suite style housing options on our campus. These suites typically consisted of 4 teeny-tiny bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and living room where four students would live. Buildings typically had 100-200 of these type rooms in a building. Also in these buildings were study rooms where students could go study in the quiet without their roommates around. These study rooms were glass on 3 sides.
So one night a group of students in one of the all-freshman buildings (I believe) decided they were going to go play poker in one of the study rooms late at night. Seems innocuous enough right?
Well sometime during this game of poker the game turned into strip poker and then it turned into sexual favors poker. Now at some point one of these students should have had the wherewithal to say "we're in a glass room and at any point someone could walk by and see this shit, maybe we should move into one of our suites? You know behind brick walls."
But yeah right, that didn't happen.
Well the RA on duty for the night has to do 2 sweeps of the building before going to bed. At 10 the security guard takes over and does sweeps of the building too. Sometime between midnight and 2 a.m. (roughly), the security guard is doing his sweep of the building and finds these students partially-to-fully naked and with several peoples heads in other people's laps (to put it politely). I don't even know what housing laws they broke, besides nudity in public and the fact that an orgy looked like it was going to break out at any second. So of course my friend the RA was woken up and forced to come down to see this to write a report. No word on if the students were allowed to put their clothes back on before she got there.
Because that's what I want to wake up to in the middle of the night- naked freshman.
