Resident Advisors

To help you ease into college life, we employ specially trained students as Resident Advisors. These RAs, who are upper-class students, will assist you with your transition to college, welcome back returning students, provide educational programming, and be your "point-of-contact" for any issues in Residence Life. 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.).

We also provide:

  • Residence Hall Linens Program You can purchase linens that fit our (36X80) beds and other supplies.
  • USA Today, The New York Times and The Bradford Era newspapers through the Newspaper Readership Program to help you stay informed.
  • RESNET - the university's computer network including wireless in all halls
  • Travel & transportation information to help you get around locally and make your trips home
