RA Selection 2015-2016

Choose Your Powerup

Apply to be a Resident Advisor.

  • Do you feel there is room for another 10 hour a week time commitment in your schedule?
  • Do you feel you could approach a resident about a personal concern that has been brought to your attention?
  • Would you feel comfortable assisting a student from an underrepresented group (e.g., student with a disability, gay/lesbian/bisexual, African American, Hispanic, etc)?
  • Are you able to confront other people's behaviors in a constructive manner?
  • Can you remain objective and fair when dealing with a conflict involving your friends and fellow staff members?
  • Are you able to react and express yourself clearly in a tense situation?
  • Do you know when someone is asking for help, but is not directly verbalizing their need?
  • Is the satisfaction of knowing you did your best enough for you?
  • When faced with criticism, are you flexible?

If you have answered yes to most of these questions you are strongly encouraged to read through the application, attend an info session/table, or speak to a current RA.
