Residential Life

Resident Directors
The Resident Directors are full-time professional staff who live in the residence halls. It is their responsibility to manage the operation of the halls, train and supervise resident assistants, implement the rules and regulations, coordinate programming, and counsel students with personal and behavioral problems. It is their role to develop a comfortable and productive living environment. Learn more about the Residential Directors.

Resident Assistants
A Resident Assistant (RA) is assigned to each floor or wing. These upperclassmen have been carefully selected and trained to coordinate and assist a floor or a wing of a residence hall. They are an excellent source of information regarding both personal and college related matters. The RAS are responsible for creating a floor community, providing a variety of social and developmental programming, and enforcing policies and procedures. The RA is a personal liaison between the College community and the residence hall student. If you have a problem or question, the RAs are here to help you in any way possible.

Custodians
Each hall has its own custodial team. The custodian assigned to your hall is responsible for cleaning the bathrooms, hallways, and other common areas. Residents’ cooperating in accommodating and accepting any brief inconvenience caused by the daily cleaning routine is greatly appreciated.

Maintenance Staff
A team of personnel performs maintenance in the residence halls. Each member of the team has trade specialties, but performs maintenance duties in a variety of areas. Both the custodians and the maintenance personnel have lead supervisors that direct their efforts.

Staff on Call
There is always a RD on duty 24 hours, 7 days a week for emergencies. If a student has any issue, they can contact the RD on Duty at 620-278-6218.
