Frequently Asked Questions

Other than duty, what does an RA do?

RAs do lots of things. RAs counsel/advise students one-on-one with roommate conflicts, working through their feelings, coping with loss, and finding their place at IC. RAs share and direct students to campus resources, help you get a lockout key, join a club, or change your major.

RAs also plan and host programs and attend weekly staff meetings. RAs come back early in August to attend training before classes start, and stay late at break periods and the end of each semester to help close the residence halls.
