Become a Resident Advisor

Students outside dorm building

Being a Resident Advisor (RA) is one of the most rewarding and rare opportunities a student can have during his or her undergraduate years. Responsibilities are numerous. The RA is the focal point for the day-to-day operation of his or her floor, and as such, must simultaneously serve as peer counselor, referral agent, friend, social chairperson, community builder, disciplinarian, and programmer.

The position of RA is an opportunity to maximize self-development, maturity, and confidence during the college years. Beyond this, the breadth of skills learned as an RA are highly transferable to the professional work world.

Information on RA selection for the 201-18 academic year will be posted in early January. 

Note that we are no longer requiring applicants to take INTD 150 or INTD 160 in order to be eligible for the RA position.
