Interested in becoming a Resident Assistant for the 2009 – 2010 academic year?
The Office of Residential Education will hold an informational session to discuss this important campus position at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19 in Stern Hall, Room 103.
Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders and paid employees of the Office of Residential Education at Hobart and William Smith. An RA is assigned to each residential area and is responsible for creating a sense of community in the residence hall.
In developing such a community, they often address issues of personal counseling, advising, policy enforcement, programming and much more. When students have questions or concerns about their living situations or about the Colleges in general, RAs are a great first stop for advice and tips.
In addition to acting as a role model both on and off-campus, RAs ensure that student behavior in residences is in accord with the Colleges’ policies as outlined in the Handbook of Community Standards.
