Resident Assistants (RA)

Resident assistants are students who are hired and trained by the Residence Life Office to assist students in the residence halls. RAs plan activities, serve as a referral, assist in resolving conflicts and work to foster a community atmosphere that is conducive to academic success and social interaction. Each RA is knowledgeable about available resources, crisis management and programming. There is at least one RA living on each floor in the residence halls. RAs are the students' first contact for any questions or concerns.

Desk Attendants (DA) / Desk Manager (DM)

The desk attendants (DA) provide security for the residence halls by monitoring the main entrances and exits of the halls. DAs enforce the ID (No ID, No Entry) and guest policies. The desk manager (DM) is responsible for assisting in the hiring, training, supervision and scheduling of the DAs.

Other Personnel

Residence Life also offers students the opportunities to work as mail people, office assistants, web masters and van drivers. In addition, during the summer recess we have conference assistant and conference manager positions available.
