What is a Resident Assistant (RA)?
A RA is a peer leader living on the floor. The main responsibility of the RA is to create a community in which resident students feel comfortable and safe. RAs go through extensive training in preparation to handle a wide variety of situations that a resident may come across, and can always recommend a resource that specializes in specific problems. RAs are on duty from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and are on call throughout the weekend. They also plan interactive programs on educational topics and community building on a monthly basis.
