Resident Assistants are full-time undergraduate students who live and work in each residential area. Resident Assistants plan activities and programs for the floor community, enforce university policy, conduct monthly health and safety inspections, and report needed repairs. Resident Assistants are aware of campus services, making them an excellent resource for students who are experiencing personal difficulties.
