Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants (RAs) serve in a unique leadership position.

RAs are full-time students who live in the residence halls and provide individual support, build community, and promote the health and safety of residents.

RAs are responsible for directing the programming and community enhancement of a wing, floor, area, or house on campus.

Students meet their RAs during Move-In, and RAs hold regular meetings for their residents.
