We offer several opportunities for employment to our students in an effort to promote leadership and community involvement. There are three groups of student staff you may interact with:
Assistant Resident Directors and Resident Assistant
These staff members are para-professional workers with extensive training. RAs live in the residence halls and are peer leaders to other students. We always recommend that students go to their RA first with any questions they have! Your RA lives on your wing with you, and will also be available several evenings a week, so they are always accessible.
Desk Monitors and Night Staff
In order to provide constant customer service and residence hall security, we employ desk monitors 24/7. They have a station at the main entrance of every building and can answer many questions, or refer you to someone more knowledgeable. Night Staff is another layer of security with similar duties who are available after dark.
Students with exceptional organizational and customer service skills work with us in the central housing office, and in the offices of our professional staff around campus. You will likely speak to one of these staff members if you come to the housing desk in the Turley Center, but rest assured that they are extremely capable, and will have the answers you need!
