Residential Hall Staff

ORL offers four different positions within the residence halls:

Residential Community Advisors (RCAs)
Residential Community Advisors are second- and third-year student-staff members living in the residence halls. Residential Community Advisors work in each traditional residence hall to build staff community through program coordination and staff development. They also co-advise hall council, 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 Area Director.
Resident Assistants (RAs)
Resident Assistants are student-staff members living in upperclass residence halls. These students live on each floor and are available to assist residents with problems and concerns. Resident Assistants work to create and maintain a sense of community on the floor and in the hall through initiating and encouraging campus and hall programs, counseling residents, confronting inappropriate behavior and interpreting the University policies to the residents.
First Year Resident Advisors (FYRAs)
First-Year Resident Advisors are student-staff members living in first-year residence halls. These students live on each floor and are available to assist residents with problems and concerns. First-Year Resident Advisors are a primary source of continuing orientation of first-year students to the University community. First-Year Resident Advisors are specially trained to understand and address common transition issues common to first-year students. They work to create and maintain a sense of community on the floor and in the hall through initiating and encouraging campus and hall programs, answering questions and directing students to different campus services, counseling residents, confronting inappropriate behavior and interpreting the University policies to the residents.
Apartment Managers (AMs)
Apartment Managers are second, third, or fourth year student staff members living in either Gates I or Gates Fricke. They work in the apartments to foster and build community through bulletin boards, and offering resources to the students living in the apartments. The Apartment Managers report to the Upper Division Area Director.
