Job Opportunities

The residence hall environment provides opportunities for students to enhance their academic and personal growth. The Resident Assistant Program expands the opportunities possible by providing competent peer assistance in the living unit. Resident Assistants, or RAs, are undergraduate students who reside in the residence halls and have the most frequent and direct communication with resident students. They, therefore, can and do have a great influence on the development and education of those individuals. Resident Assistants are the core of our efforts in the residence halls and as such are appointed to fulfill responsibilities to individuals, student groups, and the University.


As a citizen of our residential community, you have the convenience of living close to classes, the library, laundry facilities, tutors, computer labs, and the student health center. Living on campus also offers a helpful and supportive staff, a secure environment, academic support, leadership development, and employment opportunities.
