Resident Assistants (RAs) are integral to the successful functioning of the Residential Life and Housing program. RAs are student leaders who have been trained to provide guidance and support to all students living in College sponsored housing. RAs host a variety of social programs throughout each semester so that students are given the opportunity to engage with other resident students. Students interested in becoming a Resident Assistant can apply using the Resident Assistant application. All applications are due by 5:00pm on Friday, March 30, 2018. Following the submission of your application you will be asked to schedule and attend an in-person interview. Please apply here.

Upon check out, apartment condition will be assessed. Any damages found to be the result of student behavior or to be in excess of what would be considered the normal “wear and tear” of the space will be assessed to the responsible party. Damages that result from all students in residence will be divided accordingly. Any appeals to student damage charges should be submitted in writing to the Dean of Students within 1 week of the charge posting to the student account.
