Resident Assistants

Resident Assistants [PDF] Our RA's are undergraduate students specially trained in all aspects of residence hall living, with the experience and knowledge to assist residents. They are responsible for maintaining a floor environment that is conducive to studying and promote a sense of community among residents. The RA acts as an advisor to floor members and is available to discuss academic, social, and personal concerns.
