R.A. Applications Available

Applications are available for students wishing to be a resident assistant (R.A.) during the 2010-11 school year.

Those wishing to apply can pick up an application in the Wilson Hall Operations Office, which is located off the Wilson Hall Lobby, and applications must be returned by Monday, March 1, at 5 p.m.

Resident Director Gabriela Ostria serves on the Resident Assistant Recruitment Committee and says that R.A.’s play an important part in helping students transition to Arkansas Tech.

The 2010-2011 R.A.’s will work with the Office of Residential Life to ensure students living on the campus have educational and personal growth opportunities.

“Studies have shown that students who are involved are more likely to succeed because they are happier with their college experience,” says Ostria.  “It is the R.A.’s job to help students get involved, meet people, pursue their interests and ultimately, succeed.”

Ostria says students who serve as R.A.’s also learn skills that are “transferable into most jobs.”  She adds, “Our R.A.’s gain experience planning events, networking and offering customer service.  Those skills will be beneficial to students after they graduate.”

Students applying to be a resident assistant will participate in an individual interview and a group interview.
