It's really important to get as many as people as possible. You may not like certain RA's because they may have written you up, but it's not fair to fire them. Please help show that you care by signing this petition. The RA's are all great people and we hope they are all okay!

      Because Nisha is the most amazing RA I could ever ask for and doesn't deserve this.

      I know a good bit of these RA's personally. Not only are they kind, smart and caring people but they are good examples of the human condition. We all make mistakes. As an RA myself, I have made some errors that are nothing to be proud of including being on academic probation. However, it does not make me a bad person to have flaws. It also does not make these students poor RAs to have flaws themselves. Integrity, humility, and willingness to grow seem like qualities that are necessary in all human beings. So why not these 10?

      I have had the pleasure of interacting with all of these RAs, and to fire them when there is ONE MONTH left of housing, over something so small and in no way telling of their characters, is a mistake and an injustice.

      I could not have asked for a better RA this year -- Nisha is the kindest, most heartwarming person I've met at NYU, and I truly believe that she is an amazing example of what it is to be an RA. In addition, I've known our RCA Josh since day one of living in Hayden, and he is consistently the friendliest person I know in Hayden. None of these RAs or our RCA deserve this, and I urge you to reconsider what you are taking away from them, and from the residents.

      Hayden had 15 RA's for its nearly 700 students. Now there are 6. Aside from this being a bizarre case of the punishment failing to fit the crime, the remaining RA's are being dealt out a burden and the freshmen are losing a crucial resource during an already stressful time.
