What is an R.A.?
An R.A. (Residential Advisor) is a student staff member of Residence Life who works and lives in on-campus housing. The R.A. shares the responsibility for implementing the basic goals of Residence Life by promoting individual and community development through educational and social programs. The R.A.'s role consists of several components-including being a campus resource to residents, a peer counselor, a community builder, and assisting with both College and Residential Life policy enforcement. The R.A. reports directly to the Residential Coordinator of the community in which he or she resides and works collaboratively with the Director of Residence Life and the Office Manager. Remember that they are there to help you.
