Dear Vickie Hawkins,
It has recently been brought to our attention that our beloved RA, Colleen Laser, has resigned due to unfortunate circumstances. We were also alerted that she is being asked to leave our Coltrane family by Friday. The residents living on the second floor are exasperated that she would be asked to leave so suddenly, especially with exams coming up. With a new RA coming to replace her, we aren’t happy with this abrupt transition. All the girls who electronically sign their names below expressed immense discomfort with this. We are all coming up on our first exam period in college. This is a very stressful and emotional time in all our lives to make this kind of transition. We would appreciate the consideration of the girls on the floor when making this rash decision. We refer to Colleen as “Mom” because she’s our mom away from home at Appalachian that we turn to in times of need or distress. We do not feel comfortable with a new RA that is not familiar with all of us at this crucial time of the year. We request more time with our APP mom and that she be able to stay until the end of the semester to tend to our emotional and mental needs.
