WTH is this? RA clerk?
From my time “dating” (read as: hooking up with every weekend) a BU girl several years back, that’s more or less what it is. They sit at the front desk and make sure no people are piggybacking in, sign in guests, and call BUPD when students are coming in wasted or causing problems. They’re totally separate from BUPD as far as I know, and work directly for housing.

Most other colleges I know of use RA’s or student “security” employees for this.
