Our Resident Assistant Recruitment and Selection Process for the 2018-2019 academic year begins November 7, 2017, see the dates below where more information will be shared. Applications for new applicants are due on January 24, 2018 by 5pm.
Being in a student leadership role is important to your personal development and it looks phenomenal on a resume! Where else can you develop skills in mediation, conflict resolution, and obtain the abilities to “assess and control” situations? If you are personable and love to interact and build communities, then the Resident Assistant position is perfect for you!
The Office of Residence Life conducts a series of informational sessions for all students interested in the RA position (see below). These sessions are held in random locations and at a series of different times (just to make sure you can fit it somewhere in your schedule). This is your first step! Make sure you attend the session, sign-in, and ask any questions you may have. If you are not able to make a session and would like information about the position and the process, please contact the Office of Residence Life at email@example.com or 973-408-3394.
