Resident Assistants (RAs) are students who serve as role models, peer advisors, resources, and friends to students. As student staff members, RAs play a unique role in guiding, encouraging, directing, and helping other students made a smooth transition from high school to college. Change is often difficult; especially when it comes to moving away from a familiar place such as home. Becoming homesick, not adjusting to living with a roommate, and complications with the transition may arise. Every student who lives on campus has an RA who lives nearby and RAs are on-call when the offices are closed.
Each residential hall also has a full-time Hall Director (HD) who lives on campus in the residence halls. Their responsibilities include knowing each resident; serving as a resource; familiarizing students with and enforcing university policies and regulations; mediating conflicts between residents; helping residents maintain an environment conducive to learning; and as appropriate, assisting residents to improve student techniques and personal problem-solving skills.
