2012-2013 Resident Assistant selection

Housing and Residential Life are in the process of promoting the Resident Assistant Selection for 2012-2013. They want to make sure students in the School of Communications are aware of the RA Selection Process. RAs play a significant role in building community among residents in on-campus housing, and Housing and Residential Life has no doubt that many of the students in your academic discipline possess the necessary skills to be successful in this endeavor. The Info Sessions (which are required for a student to receive an application) are coming up on Sunday, November 13, and Wednesday, November 16 (details below).

Consider the following perks of becoming a Resident Assistant:
  • Meet new people
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Plan fun events
  • Build your resume with transferable skills in communication, critical thinking, emergency response, conflict resolution, administrative tasks, and more
  • Free housing and a stipend
Anyone who would like to be a Resident Assistant, or who wants to learn more about what the RA job entails, should attend one of our upcoming Info Sessions. The Info Session is required in order to pick up an application.
  • Sunday, November 13, 8pm, WVA Clubhouse
  • Wednesday, November 16, 4:30pm, WVA Clubhouse
  • Wednesday, January 18, 9:30pm, UC Sunnen Lounge
If you cannot attend an RA Info Session, you must schedule a meeting with Katie Knetzer to go over the information.
