    Resident Advisors

    To help you ease into college life, we employ specially trained students as Resident Advisors. These RAs, who are upper-class students, assist students with their transition to college, welcome back returning students, provide educational programming, and are a "point-of-contact" for any issues. Your RA lives in your section and has all the supplies you will need for your apartment (trash bags, light bulbs, toilet paper, vacuum, etc.).  Your first section meeting will be move-in weekend where you'll meet your RA, get some basic information about Housing, and receive our Housing gift.
