Interested in becoming an RA?

Applications are now live to become a Resident Advisor (RA) for the 2016-2017 academic year! Consider taking the Resident and Peer Advisor Training Class (IDST 060) in the Spring if you're not taking it during Jan Term. Although the course is not a prerequisite for becoming an RA, it will provide greater knowledge about the position and allow you to gain additional leadership skills in an experiential-learning focused class.

Housing during Jan Term Break

  • Sorority members are approved to arrive on campus on Wednesday, February 3 for sorority work week. Any sorority member that was not on campus for Jan Term who wants to arrive earlier than February 3 must pay the $50 early arrival fee.  Students who were not on campus for Fall Semester or Jan Term will need to check in at the Residence Life Office in Mahaffey Hall on Febrauary 3 from 10 am to 4 pm.
