Resident Assistants (RAs)
Resident Assistants (RAs) are student peer helpers who live on each floor or section of the residence halls. They work with the members of their floors to build communities which support each student’s academic and personal growth while at WCSU. RAs assist with the administration of the building (check-in and check-out, maintenance requests, scheduled duty and building rounds, working at the information desks, letter delivery, etc.) RAs are also trained and able to assist when roommate conflicts arise, whether just through suggesting some ways to approach a roommate, or more formally through helping to mediate misunderstandings. RAs provide a variety of social, cultural, community service, and other programs throughout the year, not only to help create a strong community, but also to provide opportunities to learn more about each other and all that WCSU has to offer. RAs also assist with things like helping you get back into your room if you left your ID inside, or to talk with when you’ve had a particularly rough day. RAs are also familiar with and can help to refer you to all kinds of campus resources: Counseling Services, Health Service, the Women’s Center, University Police, and all the learning labs and clinics. In order to successfully apply to students will need a cumulative GPA of a 2.5. We also recommend reading our website for more details about the RA position which can be found on the link below.
