Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate and graduate students who can help you with any problem you might face at any time. They are available to assist you with personal issues, academic needs, housing questions, and maintenance/custodial concerns. RAs provide leadership and guidance for residents, plan events to provide residents with opportunities to meet new people and learn new things, and hold periodic community meetings to share information and review community policies. Residence Life houses RAs in every residence hall and apartment building on campus.
Residence Life seeks dedicated student leaders with a passion for helping others and building community to serve on the RA staff each year. Being an RA is challenging, rewarding, and fun. If you would like to learn more about becoming a RA, please see our Prospective RA section.
