Residence Halls Staff
The Residence Life Department consists of 10 staff members. A coordinator for residence life oversees the program, residents and the hall staff. The hall staff comprises nine residence assistants (RAs). One RA lives on each floor of each building.
The resident assistants are there to help and support residents in all areas of life on campus, as well as provide programs and activities for the residents to be involved in. RAs are upperclass students who show leadership skills and are responsible and respected students. The RAs help incoming students feel comfortable in his or her new surroundings. Residents can come to their RA for help, guidance, or support.
The hall staff exists to serve resident students in any way possible. The hall staff strives to facilitate a wonderful experience for all of our resident students by building a strong, cohesive community in their hall.
