Job Description

The Residence Assistant (RA) is a full-time student employed as an integral member of the Residence Life staff. RAs live in a hall with a group of 12-30 residents and work with them in areas of advising, programming, discipline, administration and general operation of the residence hall. The RA position is considered to be the RA’s principal non-academic activity. It may be necessary for the RA to limit their extra-curricular activities in order to fulfill their duties.


RA compensation is equal to the charge of room and board for the fall and spring semesters, credited to the student’s account.
