Samantha's Welcome Letter

Samantha JiHello! My name is Yuchen Ji. You can just call me Samantha. I will be your Residence Assistant (RA) for the coming year. I’m from China and I’m a graduate student here at Fort Hays. As your RA, my job will be to make sure that everything goes well on our floor and in our Mcmindes Hall. Some of my duties may consist of planning social, educational, and diversified programs for you, and of courses having lots and lots of fun.

If you are incoming first year student, I can image that you may be feeling a bit overwhelmed at the thought of leaving home, and coming to FHSU. I can totally remember how I felt. The transition can be difficult to adjust to, with all the new people and surroundings, but that’s what you have me for – to help you adjust to all the new experiences of college life!

If you have any questions or concerns about move-in or any other items, please feel free to call me any time. You can email me at I am so excited to meet each and every one of you on move in day! The Orientation Assistants have planned a ton of fun activities you will meet a lot of different people from all over. So get ready to embark on a new and exciting chapter of your life.


Yuchen Ji (Samantha)
