RAs live on each floor of our residence halls. Their primary role is to help build community on their floor and throughout the building. RAs are there to assist you with finding resources solve your needs, assist in conflict mediation, present events and program opportunities and confront policy violations.
Student Assistants maintain many of the same job responsibilities of a Resident Assistant. However, SAs are placed in Forest Village Apartments and Roberta Hall. Both buildings are considered special populations being housed on campus. Therefore, student assistants in Roberta Hall have additional training in working with sororities housed on campus and student assistants in FVA have additional training in working with students as they prepare to transition to life off-campus.

DMs hire, evaluate, and train our Desk Assistant (DA) staff. The DM is responsible for the operation of the front desk(s) to which s/he is assigned. The desk operation is vital in providing service to the residents and guests. Some of the services provided at the desk include: recreation equipment, cooking equipment, vacuums, change, stamps, mail distribution, and a resource for questions from residents and guests.
DAs are students who work the front desks of each of our residence halls. They provide assistance by answering questions, checking out equipment, performing mail service, taking maintenance requests, provide lockout services, and more.
