Resident Assistant


The Resident Assistant (RA) is a full-time student employed as an integral member of the Residence Life staff.

The RAs live on a wing or in a house with a group of 10-40 residents and work with them in areas of advising, programming (social, educational, cultural, and athletic), discipline administration and general operation of the residence halls. The RA position has many other benefits on which tangible value cannot be placed. An RA has opportunities to develop skills in management, organization, time budgeting and effective techniques of counseling with others in conflict resolution or personal problems. All of these are valuable tools to develop regardless of one’s later role in life. Interviews for RA positions are held in February.
