Being an RA has provided me the opportunity to develop efficient time management skills while getting the chance to change lives. The best thing is witnessing the resident’s growth through the year.
Being an RA has been an incredible experience so far. Not only has this position helped me perfect time management and other skills, but it has also made me realize that I want to have a career where I’m assisting others.

Resident assistants are vital to building and maintaining successful learning communities in which members have a sense of belonging. RAs serve as peer mentors, resources, role models, and assist in building a welcoming community for the students living in the residence halls and apartments. We hope you apply to become an RA.
If you intend to live on campus next year, regardless of accepting an RA position, you must go through the recontracting process. Candidates who become Resident Assistants will be re-assigned to an RA space.
Contact your RA, your residence hall director, call 512.245.3705 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Becoming an RA has helped me in building my resume and has made it easier for me to get involved. I’ve been very shy and this is the perfect opportunity for getting me talking to more people and becoming comfortable in social situations.
