The mission of the Office of Residential Life:

Facilitating enjoyable, sustainable and inclusive communities that support and enhance students' academic achievement and personal development.

For more information, please visit the ORL website.

Residential Community Advisors (RCAs) are second- and third-year student-staff members living in the residence halls. Residential Community Advisors work in traditional residence halls to build staff community through program coordination and staff development. They also manage the front desk area and serve on various Office of Residential Life Committees. Finally, Residential Community Advisors mentor new student-staff members and serve as a contact in the absence of the Residence Director.

RCAs are busy people. This list shows the commitments they keep on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

Residential Community Advisors will be housed in the traditional halls: Dodds, Dolan, Ferguson, Gulick, Harriett, Magill, Martin, Munsell, and Pfeiffer.

It is important that you make an appointment with the Office of Financial Aid to determine how an ORL staff position will alter your financial aid package. Call 556-3096 to make an appointment.
