Meet The Student Staff

Resident Assistants (RAs) are undergraduate student who have been specially selected and trained to work in the residence halls and houses. These typically upper-class student staff members serve as resource persons, peer counselors, and advisors. Among other duties, RAs assist in resolving roommate conflicts, enforcing residence hall policies and procedures, and planning activities and programs. If you have any problems or concerns, this is the first person that you should contact in seeking a resolution.

Desk Assistants (DAs) are undergraduate students hired to provide information and services at most residence hall information desks. DAs staff most information desks from 7:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m., after which a State Security Officer from Public Safety will be present. Contact a DA whenever you need information or immediate assistance.
