Residence Directors (RDs) are full-time live-in professional staff members. They are responsible for the overall operation of residence halls and supervision of the RAs. RDs are available for individual and group counseling and mediation on personal, academic, and social issues.

Resident Assistants (RAs) are friendly, helpful students who live in the residence halls and who respect and care about the rights and dignity of all people, who challenge and support growth in themselves and others, and who strive to create a welcoming, positive living and learning environment for all residents. RAs are chosen because they have shown skill in time management, flexibility, patience, strong ability to communicate, a sense of humor and the enthusiasm for assisting others. They serve as information resources about the residence halls and campus life. Resident Assistants are vital members of the Office of Student Affairs team serving our residents’ needs. If you have any questions or concerns, ask your RA.
