Resident Assistants (RAs)

What is an RA?

Resident Assistants (RAs) are current students that serve as an integral part of the Resident Life Office. Through their direct interactions with students, Resident Assistants are expected to facilitate the social, educational, spiritual, intellectual, physical, vocational, cultural, and environmental development of each resident. 

Each floor within a residence hall is staffed with an RA who lives on the floor and oversees approximately 35 fellow residents. The RA is an upper-class student who is trained as a peer counselor and advisor and is responsible for developing a strong community on his or her wing or floor.

Resident Assistants serve as campus resources, mediate roommate conflicts, coordinate hall programming, hold hall meetings, assist with resident check-in and check-out, and perform weekly "on-call" duties. RAs are the eyes and ears of the Office of Residence Life, and are the first step in providing a safe, secure, and successful environment within the residence halls. RAs are leaders and role models within the community and ultimately help build a positive social environment in which residents live.
