Student Staff

Our Resident Assistants (RAs) are students specially trained in all aspects of residential community living, with the experience and knowledge to assist residents. They are responsible for maintaining an environment that is conducive to studying and promote a sense of inclusivity and community among residents. The RAs and SAAs act as an advisor to floor members and are available to discuss academic, social, and personal concerns. Click on the photo of your RA below to learn some quick facts about them!

Who’s on Duty?

The residence halls have two RA staff members "On Call" every night. These individuals are available for any problems or emergencies that may arise. Students may contact the RA on duty (616-648-7513) from 6pm-8am every day.
