Resident Assistants (RAs)

Resident Assistants are some of the most important people at the University. They are students, just like you, who are available to assist you and serve as a resource providing information related to events/programming, behavioral expectations, crisis response, and academic and social support. Resident Assistants also work with residents to help create a comfortable living-learning environment for all.

Community Assistants (CAs)

CAs serve in the same capacity as our RAs, but they are particularly focused on the undergraduate student-athlete population that reside in our “Bridge Community”.
