Resident Advisors (RAs)

Resident Advisors (RAs) are full-time students who are selected and trained to help create an atmosphere conducive to growth and development. They serve as group facilitators, referral agents, and activity advisors. They also assist students with personal, academic, and social concerns. Resident Advisors are available to help students adjust to life in on-campus housing and at the University. Every student has an assigned RA, but residents are free to seek aid or counsel from any RA.
