Join the Res Life Team

Thank you for your interest in serving a vital role in our campus community. Resident Assistants, Head Residents, and House Managers are hardworking students who like a challenge. Their positions require attention to detail, the ability to be appropriately assertive while earning respect, and the ability to use good judgment at all times.

The Residence Life staff applications are patterned after others one might find in the real world. Every college student should have the skills to compose a resume and cover letter, so interested applicants should have their resumes and cover letters looked over by the Wackerle Career and Leadership Center staff prior to submitting their documents.

Hard copies of applications for new and returning applicants are available at the Office of Residence Life in Poling Hall. Applications are due by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 1, 2017.

Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions you may have about the application process. We wish you the best in pursuing this important leadership role.

John N. Salazar, Jr.
Director of Residence Life
