6  Do not, under any circumstances, give guests keys to the room or your student ID to access the residence hall  They should be with you at all times anyway, so they will not need access by themselves  Please make sure guests know what to do in case of an emergency(how to call for help, how to exit the building during an alarm, where to find exits, etc.)  When available, introduce the guests to your R.A. or Hall Director. This will provide staff with the opportunity to get to know who is visiting in the building  If you have a problem with your guest, please notify us ASAP  Be friendly and inviting  Their experience here at A&M could be the deciding factor in their choice of university  SHARE YOUR STORY! They are here to see what life is like as an Aggie, so they want to hear about your experiences!
