Continuation of employment is dependent upon positive periodic evaluations by the Office of Residence Life professional staff and demonstration of continued enthusiasm for the position. RAs are expected to be the first residents in the halls and the last residents out of the halls.
  2. Living Arrangements: RAs will be assigned to a staff room and, when space allows, will be given a private room at no additional cost. Where there is an excess housing demand, the Department will make every effort to allow RAs their first choice of a roommate.

  5. Academic Performance: All RAs must maintain a cumulative 2.5 grade point average throughout employment. Failure to maintain a 2.5 GPA could result in probation or termination.
