Resident Advisors (RAs)

Resident Advisors: A team of undergraduate and graduate/professional students selected for their unique qualifications, academic excellence, and participation in University and community activities. They stand out in their interest in being leaders in the College House community and offering peer support to their residents. Additionally, our graduate RAs are selected from a variety of graduate programs and as such they bring a slightly different perspective to the College House. Their advanced academic and professional backgrounds enable them to nurture academic and co-curricular interests in the House, with their programming often reflecting their own particular studies.
