Resident Assistants are upper class student staff members that are knowledgeable of campus resources and offerings. RA's help students meet new people, get involved, identify resources on campus, focus on their studies and have fun.

The Resident Assistant position is considered one of the top leadership positions at Mount St. Joseph University. Resident Assistants can help residents in the following ways.

Meeting New People

Resident Assistants are very involved on campus and can help point new students in a direction where they can meet people with like-minded interests.

Getting Involved

Interested in sports? Nature? What about math and science? The RA's can help you get in contact with any of the leaders of our over 40 clubs and organizations on campus to get involved.  Interested in something we don't offer? The RA's can help you start your own club!

Personal Health and Wellness

The RA's go through training before every school year to work with our Wellness Center so we can best point our residents in the right direction regardless of the problem. Our Wellness Center offers medical services through a nurse and doctor, as well as counseling services including a counselor on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Managing Roommate Conflicts

Living with a roommate can be a great way to meet someone new, but sometimes conflicts arise. The RA's are trained to to help mediate roommate conflicts in a way that reaches the swiftest and most effective solution for everyone involved while maintaining positive relationships.
