Frequently Asked Questions

How many hours a week will I spend in the RA job?

Typically you’ll spend about 10 hours, not including RA evening duty (this is on a rotational schedule with your RA staff). As an RA, you’ll be attending a weekly 2 hour staff meeting on Thursday evenings, meet with your RD for an hour weekly or biweekly, plan and host programs/events, attend training sessions, and meet with your students. Some weeks are busier than others – including the first few weeks of classes.
