Resident Assistants (RAs) are juniors, seniors, and graduate students at the University who serve as role models, peer advisors, resources, and friends to students. As student staff members, RAs play a unique role in guiding, encouraging, directing, and helping other students. They are chosen for their leadership and community-building skills and are extensively trained before the beginning of each academic year. Every student who lives on campus has an RA who lives nearby and RAs are on-call when the offices are closed.
Why should you contact your Resident Assistant?
Just like the professional staff, RAs can be contacted for almost anything. They are often your best source of information about anything relating to campus life.
