With more than 3,000 views on YouTube, Kellen Story's "Stuff Hall Directors Say To RAs...because swearing doesn't help build community" is a fantastic glimpse into the day-to-day humor that arises in residence life.

Although I’m the same age my mother was when she packed me off to college, I’m still a long way from knowing what it will feel like to send my own children out into the big, wide world. I appreciate the wisdom of my fellow bloggers who write about their experiences with college-aged kids. Even though my oldest is only ten, I get little hints every now and then of what it might be like to see him off on a life adventure.
