Gabe Hedges describes his time as an undergraduate student at Ohio State, particularly his service as a dorm resident advisor and as a community advisor for Buckeye Village. Hedges became a dorm resident advisor at Archer House his sophomore year, and he had to figure out how to advise fellow residents who were older than he. Just before his junior year, he married his high school sweetheart, and they moved to Buckeye Village, which is housing for married couples and graduate students. He describes how different the two experiences were, and he also discusses the effect on Buckeye Village residents of the University's decision to ultimately tear down the complex to make room for athletic facilities. He also discusses the effect of COVID-19 on the community and on his role as community advisor.
