    Resident Advisors

    To help you ease into college life, we employ specially trained students as Resident Advisors. These RAs, who are upper-class students, assist students with their transition to college, welcome back returning students, provide educational programming, and are a "point-of-contact" for any issues. Your RA lives in your section and has all the supplies you will need for your apartment (trash bags, light bulbs, toilet paper, vacuum, etc.).

    For your safety, here are the Alcohol Limits (for those 21 or older) per person:

    • 12 - 12 oz.  beers, or
    • 750 ml of alcohol, or
    • 6 - 12-oz bottles of wine coolers or malt beverages (e.g., Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Smirnoff Ice, etc.); or
