Lead Resident Assistants and Resident Assistants

The Office of Residential Life employs outstanding students to provide residents with  role models within their living area. They are a referral and resource agent for all students. These leadership positions balance building a community and enforcing University policy. These are highly sought-after positions. Selected students are trained rigorously for two weeks prior to the arrival and return of our residential students.

There is one lead resident assistant (LRA) on each resident assistant (RA) staff. The LRAs are support agents, resource agents, and liaisons for the resident directors and resident assistants. RAs plan events and activities for residents while developing the building's community.

Lead Resident Assistants (LRAs)

The lead resident assistants are a small elite group of returning residents assistants who assist the resident director with administrative duties, and provide paraprofessional leadership and support to their designated staff. There is one lead resident assistant in six of our seven areas.

Resident Assistants (RAs)

The resident assistants are carefully selected upper-class students assigned to each living community. They assist residential students with transitions during their ever-changing college career. In addition, the resident assistants develop and facilitate social and educational programming, which encourages a strong, positive, and inclusive community. They are responsible for actively creating and establishing a community within their assigned area. Please contact them directly if you have any questions or concerns.
