Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RA) are members of the Housing and Residence Life team that play a vital role in the development of community within the residence halls and on campus. RAs are upper-class students who have lived on campus at least one full semester.

Students who are interested in becoming an RA for the next academic year should look for RA recruitment information in early October. If you have questions about RA recruitment please talk to a current RA, a Hall Director, or a Residence Life Coordinator.
