Each Resident Assistant (RA) is a peer advisor, role model, community builder, informal listener, facilitator, program planner, and friend to the students living in the residence halls. RAs fit into the total educational picture of the university and residence hall living, as they are the day-to-day contact persons with residents and are key to the overall success of the Residence Life program.
