Introducing: The Annapolis Summer Academy RA’s

Happy Summer Academy Season! The Resident Assistants for Annapolis sessions Revolution & Rebellion and Freedom & Order are CPR certified and ready to greet their students on campus! Over the next few days you can find your friendly RA’s preparing for poetry workshops, Borges’ study groups, pottery, art lessons, stargazing, and more. We are so excited to meet this year’s group of students to discuss Ptolemy and Tolstoy, Darwin and DuBois.
