RA Selection

The students who work in our halls, cottages and apartments are the foundation of our communities.

Currently, we have 162 Residential Assistants (RAs) to serve approximately 2,400 on-campus residents. Each residential hall, floor and wing, cottage and apartment has a resident assistant living in and leading the community. Below you will find the general timeline and schedule for 2017–2018 RA selection process. Check back early in the fall semester for updated dates and information for next year's selection process.
