When I was an Resident Assistant at the dormitory of my college, I had one resident who was drunk and pretty obnoxious all the time. During this time, my other residents were also very unruly, drinking in the halls, being noisy past quiet hours, etc. The other RAs would constantly be giving my residents housing citations and warnings about their behavior and it was explained to them that this behavior could not continue or they would jeopardize their housing. This was a big enough threat for most, but the trouble resident continued anyways, and was put on probation. He was on his last strike when I caught him with a beer in the hallway. I had to issue a citation. And with that, he was removed from the housing system and a new resident brought in to fill his place. Almost immediately after his removal, the whole situation on the floor brightened. My residents were almost never issued citations anymore and general drinking and rowdiness was at a minimum. Funny how one bad apple really can spoil the batch.
Here’s hoping the same happens now that we’ve removed our bad apple.
