Resident Directors (RD)
Resident Directors are live-in professionals that work for Residence Life. They are college graduates who run the day to day operations of their individual residence halls / areas. They participate in an on-call emergency duty rotation during the evenings/weekends to ensure the safety and integrity of the resident student population. As professional staff members, they supervise a staff of Head Residents and Resident Assistants (HRs / RAs) in addition to the daily maintenance of the building(s) that they are responsible for.

Head Residents / Resident Assistants (HR / RA)
Head Residents and Resident Assistants are students who are employed by the Residence Life. They are placed amongst the rest of the residential student population for the main purpose of building a community in their areas. This is largely accomplished by the in-hall programming that each staff member creates to cater to their population. Each staff member is trained extensively in conflict resolution, crisis intervention and management, the Student Code of Conduct and "The Residence Life Handbook", and is a contact person for emergencies. All student staff members participate in an evening duty rotation to assist with any occurrences.
In order to become an HR / RA, students must successfully pass an application and interview process. All HR / RAs must be full-time matriculated students, have a clean disciplinary record, and a 2.5 cumulative GPA. Compensation ranges from $6,050 to $11,650 a year, in the form of a bed waiver (all RAs/HRs) and meal plan (HRs only).
Conference Assistants (CA)
Conference Assistants are students who help the office run over the summer and monitor the Conference Program. This position is utilized only during the summer months, when camps and conference groups are registered with the college. Like the HR / RA staff, the CA staff participates in an all-day duty rotation to handle occurrences. Students receive a bed waiver as compensation for being a CA.
The Mail Clerk is a student that is employed by our office to organize and distribute mail and packages to the resident student population. This student has regular office hours during the day in Residence Life and evening hours in the Mail Room in Orchard Hall. Compensation for this position is a bed waiver.
Maintenance Assistants help Residence Life with Work Orders that resident students submit. These students have regular office hours to assist with the facilities and inventory.
Desk Managers are student leaders who help us maintain the safety and security of the residence halls. They are staffed at the entrance of the residence halls and ensure that the visitation and overnight guest policies are being adhered to.
