Resident Assistant (RA) Information 


What is a Resident Advisor?

 A Resident Advisor is one who is mature and responsible. One who will be an asset to the residence halls, campus, and Office of Residence Life as well as to the Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management (SAEM). One who was chosen on the basis of his/her leadership, character, academic standard, and the ability to relate well with others. One who is willing to go an extra mile to assist in any way he/she can. 


Goal of a Resident Advisor

To maintain an environment that is conducive to academics and personal development at all times. Realizing that we are concerned with the total well being of the student, we must remember that whatever we do, we must make sure that there are constructive lessons to be learned. The Resident Advisor is the assistant to the Residence Hall Coordinator. The ultimate goal for each staff person is to assist in the development of a living facility that is comfortable, clean, safe, and conducive for study.
