Resident Assistants (RAs) are selected by the Office of Resdience Life after a rigorous screening process.  Applicants must show an interest in people, maturity, and responsibility.  Our RAs serve as a resource for students with problems and questions and are responsible for ensuring that students adhere to the college's rules and regulations.  RAs directly oversee the residents on their floors.  The RAs report to both the Residence Hall Director and the Coordinator of Residence Life.  RAs are required to attend weekly staff meetings, plan events, brainstorm resolutions to issues that arise, and ensure the safety of all residents.  Resident Assistants will:
