  • If you are a resident student, chances are one of the first people you will meet on move-in day will be your Resident Assistant (RA). Your RA is an upper-class student who lives on your hall and is there to answer questions and offer support, guidance and friendship. Your RA is trained in crisis intervention, conflict mediation, basic counseling skills and hall policies and is supervised by a Resident Director (RD), a professional college administrator who also lives on campus in a residence hall.

    If you need directions to your first class, have an idea for a hall program or are simply feeling a little homesick, your RA is there for you.

    Two Resident Assistants are scheduled on duty each evening and weekend as information resources and for help with medical, security or maintenance concerns. In addition, a trained college employee is available each night to assist in emergency situations. For any emergencies, the Office of Public Safety is also available 24 hours a day at 518-244-3177.
