Office of Residence Life


The Office of Residence Life (ORL) actively participates in the Division of Student Affairs' Pathways model. As a programming center, ORL offers two primary touch points for students:  Resident Assistant Programs and Resident Student Association Programs.  

Resident Assistant Programs

Resident Assistants in the halls program in alignment with the divisional pillars of Belonging, Identity, Leadership, Social Concern, Spirituality, and Well-Being. These programs, while educational in nature, ultimately facilitate community involvement and social development for residents. Your RA is an excellent person to ask about upcoming programs and would be interested to hear if you have program ideas for the future. The Hall Director of each hall oversees the RA staff and another great person with whom to discuss community programs.

Resident Student Association Programs

Each hall on campus has a Resident Student Association (RSA) that reports to a campus-wide RSA executive board. RSA is charged with designing and implementing social and educational programs for residential students. These programs are created by students, for students. If you are interested in learning about the event planning process or have ideas you think can improve your hall community, reach out to your Hall Director to discuss involvement in your RSA. Be on the look out for fliers and emails regarding upcoming RSA events in your community.
