It was a hot humid August day, the sound of bugs humming and chirping filled the air. Ben streached and looked over at the clock on the wall and unfortunately it was time to get up. He grumbled and got his 6'3 frame out of bed, streaching again and rubbing his eyes. It was far to hot in the dorms to get much sleep, not to mention the fact that he was up late getting ready for the start of the semester. He had the entire hall decorated and all doors labled with the names of the students who would soon reside in them. On top of 14 returning residents he has another 30 new timers which meant a lot of work getting ready for them.

He quickly got dressed throwing on a cotton undershirt, a pair of jean shorts, and a pair of sneakers before heading down stairs and joining his fellow RA's outside. "Morning Mary" He said greeting one of them as he sat down. "Ready for another exciting school year?" "No...its far to hot out to be excited for much of anything other than a dip in the pool later. I might make that a floor event" Ben laughed whole hardheartedly and started getting things ready for the students that would be arriving soon. After about 15 minutes he spotted a woman with dark skin holding a map and looking frazzled and lost. "Excuse me" he said to Mary who just nodded and took a long pull of a glass of ice water she had next to her. Approaching the young lady Ben reached out and put a hand on her shoulder. "Excuse me, you seem a little lost, do you need help finding your way around? I'm Ben Harkins, one of the Resident Advisers here. "
