Frequently Asked Questions

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

Typically you’ll spend about 10 hours, not including duty. As an RA, you’ll be attending a weekly 2 hour staff meeting, meet with your RD for an hour weekly or biweekly, plan and host programs, attend training sessions, and meet face to face with your residents. Some weeks are busier than others – like the first few weeks of classes.
