Information Sessions (Returning RA and SRA Applicants Only)

We are offering two information sessions for Returning RA and SRA candidates

  • If you are applying to the Returning RA position only, the info session is not required but you’re welcome to attend.
  • If you are applying to be a new or returning SRA, you are required to attend an info session or meet 1:1 to go over the info session material with a coordinator from the committee.

These sessions are open to anyone applying to be a Returning RA or SRA. If you were previously an RA or SRA and are applying to come back but are not currently employed by Student Housing & Dining Services, you are especially encouraged to attend.

Sessions are Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Regan Main and Saturday, December 9, 2017 at 5 p.m. in Wall Main. We are asking you to sign up for a session so we know how many handouts to bring.

If you can’t attend either of the sessions, you can sign up for a 1:1 with one of the members of the selection committee who will go over the information during Finals Week.

A quick note: if you are applying to both Returning RA and SRA positions, you must submit both applications.
