Resident assistants (RA) are part-time undergraduate student staff members of Housing & Residence Life (HRL) and the University’s Office of Campus Life. HRL believes that life in the residence halls provides students an important opportunity to complement their classroom learning experience. The RA fulfills a vital role in the residence hall system by helping students integrate learning experiences gained from both inside and outside of the classroom. The primary function of the RA is to facilitate interpersonal relationships and to create living situations that maximize opportunities for students to learn and grow.
