Resident Assistant (RA)

Apply to be an RA

The Resident Assistant (RA) is a critical member of the Residence Life staff. The RA is an undergraduate student who works with students in their residence community to provide an academically-conducive and socially-enriching environment.  

The RA is trained to serve as a resource to students about campus resources. The RA also provides social and enrichment programming to meet the needs of his or her specific area.

A good RA is conscientious, dedicated, personable, and able to interact with a wide variety of students in a positive manner. The RA role is time-intensive. Good RAs are also able to balance conflicting commitments with academic, social, and job responsibilities.
