Resident Assistants, (RA), and Community Assistants, (CA), serve as a liaison between the staff, faculty, and residents. The RA/CA is a resource person for supplies, work orders, and occasional referrals for students who may be experiencing difficulties or problems at school. An RA/CA is available 24 hours a day to assist residents in a wide variety of situations. RAs and CAs strive to create a community within their residence as well as an environment that promotes integrity, a cooperative spirit, respect for others, and one that allows freedom of academic pursuits.
