The primary contact for students that live in the residence halls is their Resident Assistant or RA. Each resident has an RA that lives on their floor or wing. The RA is responsible for providing programming activities, maintaining a safe community, and is available to assist residents around the clock. RAs report to a full time or graduate staff member that lives in the community and is also available to assist residents. If residents need any assistance, they should not hesitate to seek out any member of the Residence Life team or stop by the main office, which is located in the lower level of Conrad Hall.
