Returning Resident Assistant Application

Each Resident Assistant (RA) works in a residence hall setting under the supervision of a Resident Director. An RA’s role is to work with other Residence Life staff to create an environment within each residence hall community that promotes the educational experience of residential students. An RA teaches and reinforces the philosophy and policies of the Office of Residence Life and Shenandoah University to his/her residence hall community and represents the needs of his/her students to the administration. Specific responsibilities and expectations vary slightly among residential areas, but the following are basic expectations of every Resident Assistant.
