Residence Life Team
Our Residence Life team is made up of Resident Assistants, House Presidents, and Coordinators who are here to provide a wide array of programs and learning sessions for students within residence. Click on the tabs below to find out more about our team members!
Resident Assistants (RAs) work in cooperation with the house members to create an atmosphere of responsibility, consideration and respect. These are the people who unlock the doors when students have locked themselves out, listen to students if they need to talk, and will point students in the right direction if they have any questions about the University. RAs also provide students with valuable and fun programs to give a balanced experience while here at university.
Resident Assistants address confidential, personal, social, medical, financial, or academic concerns. They are extremely knowledgeable and enjoy helping and are a friendly face to go to with any problems.
