Resident Advisors

Resident Advisors (RAs) are students who serve as role models, peer advisors, resources, and friends to students.

Meet Our Staff

As student staff members, RAs play a unique role in guiding, encouraging, directing, and helping other students make a smooth transition from high school to college. Change is often difficult, especially when it comes to moving away from a familiar place such as home. Becoming homesick, not adjusting to living with a roommate, and complications with the transition may arise. Every student who lives on campus has an RA who lives nearby, and RAs are on call when the offices are closed.

Each residential hall also has a full-time Hall Director (HD) who lives on campus in the residence halls. Their responsibilities include knowing each resident; serving as a resource; familiarizing students with and enforcing university policies and regulations; mediating conflicts between residents; helping residents maintain an environment conducive to learning; and, as appropriate, assisting residents to improve student techniques and personal problem-solving skills.
