Life's a Little Easier with a Friend
Resident Assistants (RA's) are upper-class students who live on each floor or building of the residence halls. Their role is to make life easier and to be a close, accessible source of information and guidance.
Resident Assistants plan several activities throughout each semester to help build community among the resident students. Students are encouraged to discuss with the Area Coordinator and Resident Assistants their ideas about programs and their living environment.
The Resident Assistants distribute information on activities, athletics, programs, room sign-up, etc. as requested by various offices across the campus, Most importantly, when you need advice or just someone to listen, you can turn to your RA.
Furthermore, the Resident Assistants serve as a liaison between the Department of Housing and Residence Life and other administrative offices, organizations and resident students.
