Summer Staff


Resident Advisor

The Summer Resident Advisor (RA) facilitates and promotes a positive community within the residence halls. RAs are peer “helpers” and assist in the growth and development of students as well as assisting them in maximizing their college experience. RAs serve as a liaison between the University Student Housing and University Food Services administration and students in the residence halls. Summer RAs have a great deal of administrative responsibilities and deal with an extremely diverse and transitory population. Short-term community development efforts are a focus in the summer due to the nature of the residents. Additionally, summer RAs have the opportunity to work the hall front desk up to 15 paid hours a week and assist with University Student Housing Tours.


Summer Conference Assistant

The Summer Confernece Assistants (SCAs) are hired full time to manage the summer housing operations. Summer Confernece Assistants work closely with the Program Manager, Conference and Event Services staff, University Student Housing staff, and each other to ensure a high level of customer service is provided. Summer Conference Assistants are hired in February and start training one to two hours per week immediately, then work full time from May-August. There will be additional night/evening hours expected for conference check-ins, on-call duty, etc.


Summer Desk Clerk

The Desk Clerks (DCs) are student employees who work in the residence halls and summer conferencing halls helping residents and guests with anything they may need. Front desks are the hub of services and activity in each residence hall. Desk Clerks are the primary customer service agent at the desk, provide administrative support and monitor the safety and security of the building. Convenience of working where they live, fun and supportive coworkers and supervisors, and interacting with other students are the top reasons why desk clerks say they enjoy their job.
