RA Selection

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

Currently, we have over 160 Resident 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 2021–2022 RA selection process.
