Resident Assistant Selection for 2018-2019

Resident Assistants (RAs) are live-in student leaders who serve as residents' primary resource for campus information and for students' transition into the next stage of their personal and professional development on campus. Each RA brings a unique skill set and their own personality traits and values to the position. It is this diversity of thought and experiences that makes a team of RA’s thrive. We welcome all students who share our values to join our team.
