Ramen with a Side of College

A tool to help RAs begin spiritual conversations

Home / Products & Services/ RA & Ramen Strategy

As leaders living in the dorms, RAs have a unique opportunity to connect with students.

Residents see them as a source of encouragement, practical advice, and counsel.

What if RAs could easily incorporate their spiritual life into these relationships?

Ramen with a Side of College

Ramen with a Side of College is designed as a tool to begin spiritual conversations while, at the same time, providing an easy-to-understand resource on the nuances of college life.

From laundry instructions to safety tips, Ramen serves as a reference book for all the advice RAs typically give to their students. However, throughout the book are scattered thoughtful questions designed to spark spiritual conversations.

With this tool, RAs can safely engage their students in meaningful conversations as they teach them how to survive college and life on their own.
