Resident Assistants are carefully selected full-time undergraduate students who live and work on each residence hall floor. Resident Assistants plan activities and programs for the floor community, enforce school policy, conduct monthly health and safety inspections, and report needed repairs. Resident Assistants are also good resources for students who are experiencing personal difficulties, since Resident Assistants are aware of campus services.
