Resident Assistant Mentor Program (RAMP)

RAMP is a fall semester leadership preparation and exploration program for freshmen, sopomores and juniors who may be interested in future RA candidacy.

Students participating in RAMP meet in small groups approximately every other week during the fall semester. Each group meeting will be facilitated by a Residence Life professional and last about an hour. At these meetings, students will be introduced to various roles of the RA position, participate in activities designed to define and develop their leadership style, and hone interviewing skills in preparation for RA interviews.
