Resident Assistants (RA) are upper-class student leaders who are carefully selected and trained to help foster a learning-living environment in the residence halls at Rockford College. The RA’s are assigned a high degree of responsibility in working with the students and administration
to create and maintain a safe, productive community in the halls.
RA’s are also on the front lines of assisting new students in making the transition to college life as smooth as possible. Through various activities, RA's help students adjust to life at Rockford College by putting on programs that encourage students to develop and master life skills such as problem solving and critical thinking while developing their individuality. Your RA will be there to listen to and answer your questions (or refer you to someone who can), and take a genuine interest in you as a person. Your RA will also confront you if you are violating policy and will ask you to confront each other when someone else's behavior is a problem.
Resident advisors are generally selected towards the end of the spring semester. If you are interested in becoming a
RA we encourage you to look over the application and speak with a current RA.Meet our Resident Assistants
