Get to Know Residence Staff
Resident Assistants (RAs) live in every hall on campus and are in contact with students every day. Through programming, student interaction, and upholding community standards they build community within the hall or area of halls they serve. Resident Assistant staffs host 4 or more programs per month to aid in developing students holistically. Programming categories include Social, Diversity, and Educational. There are 1-2 RAs on call in each hall or area of halls every evening school is in session.
