All RAs are required to assist with the opening and closing of the halls for each semester and for all vacation periods. 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.

RAs are not permitted to hold other compensatory positions without the approval of the Residence Life professional staff. RAs seeking to student teach, intern, or play sports should notify the Residence Life professional staff well in advance.
  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.
