Define Yourself

All Staff Goofy

Being a RA provides opportunities to develop valuable leadership and communication skills, to shape an environment that supports students' academic and personal development, to make friends that will last a lifetime, and to define yourself!

The RA position is extremely important to the Department of Residence Life. We want to ensure RAs have the skills, interests, and experiences that will help them thrive in this challenging and enjoyable position.

Selection decisions are based on information from the application, the time spent in the RA Leadership class, the interview process, and references. Solely filling out the application does not guarantee that a candidate will be selected for the RA class or the RA role.
