Become a Resident Assistant!
A Resident Assistant is responsible for creating a positive, inclusive living and learning environment in the residence halls. They interact with their residents and help students transition to college living by making the residence halls home. They are also the primary connection between the Housing and Residence Life Department and the students.
Resident Assistants have a variety of responsibilities, including:

- Attend mandatory trainings and orientations at the beginning of each semester
- Create and put on events throughout the semester
- Build healthy, positive relationships with other students
- Create a comfortable environment through hall décor and the use of bulletin boards

- RAs must have a minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA) for returning students and a 2.5 or equivalent for students new to college.

We are looking for a student who will treat the RA position as a job and as a way of life, a positive individual who genuinely cares about others and wants what is best for them, and a leader who knows when it is time to educate and when it is time to listen.
