Resident Assistants

Why should you be an RA? The real question is why WOULDN’T you be an RA? Being an RA is more than just the free private room (but that’s pretty awesome, too). Being an RA is being part of one of the biggest families on campus. In ResLife, you will tackle real world situations that give you hands-on experience that you cannot find anywhere else. This is obviously beneficial for a resume, but it will definitely enhance your training and skills for your future. Speaking of skills, in ResLife, you will learn a multitude of different skills, ranging from people skills, conflict management, and professional skills, to conflicts with people in the professional world. All that aside, don’t forget the feeling of satisfaction you feel from knowing you are helping your peers, thus also helping your campus. These feelings, experiences, and skills don’t just last a school year; they last a lifetime.
