Welcome to the BSU Department of Residential Life's new wiki for RA's, PAA's, CA's, and ARHD's. This is a place for you to share ideas on any number of topics.

Right now we're just getting started and we're going to have to work together to build some solid content for this site. It's intended to be a resource for current and future staff members. There are a few topics already in place to be fleshed out, but don't feel limited by what is here. Add any content you want. This is your wiki, use it however you wish.

A couple of rules:

  • Be civil
  • Keep confidentiallity a concern

Other than that, have fun.

Even if you can't add major articles or other content, editing is always helpful, and so are comments. Let others know what you find helpful and want to see more of.

If you're not sure where to start, poke around and find something interesting, or click the "site tools" button at the bottom of this page, then click the "wanted pages" button. It will give you a list of pages with no content on them. Also, there is a to-do list at the bottom of this page. Feel free to tackle any of those projects.

If you're new to wikis and not sure how to edit them, hit the Sandbox. You can play with the engine there.

Wiki Discussion

What do you guys want to see on this wiki? Any other pages? Any functionality?

Wanted Pages

I was wondering what people think about a staff archive page, old photos of staff, staff lists sorted by date. Could be fun.

Also, a resources page with links to other websites loaded with information. Yes? No?

Pages that need to be finished
