Resident Assistants build communities in University of Denver dorms

The photos that make up this slideshow are mainly photos of RA’s that allowed me to shadow them while they performed duties related to the job, including walking with them on duty nights, photographing them interacting with residents, and taking pictures at programs held during the week.

Students use Facebook to connect with friends

Bao Le, a fourth-year Business major, signed up for a Facebook account in his first year of college and uses the site actively for at least three hours every day.

“It was told to me that without one, it’d be easy to miss out on events and that it was essential to making more friends. These days, I mainly use Facebook to connect/socialize with people that I don’t see very often in person. A lot of times, my friends are either very busy or are not in the state anymore and it’s a great way of maintaining friendships,” said Le.

Aaron Fisher, a second-year majoring in International Studies and Economics, also uses Facebook to connect with friends online.
