Thank you for your interest
in becoming a Resident Assistant!
Resident Assistants (RAs) are student leaders that make a huge difference
at Hendrix, and we commend you for seeking to take up such a role within the
residential community. RAs are trained on a variety of topics in order to
prepare them for the challenges that they may encounter through their position.
While dealing with the “tough
stuff” is a necessary part of the job, RAs benefit greatly from their
experience. Not only do they get a
single room at the rate of a double, Odyssey credit, and a monetary stipend,
but RAs also gain valuable experience outside of the classroom. RAs are also part of a greater staff, both
peer and professional, that is committed to supporting and encouraging each
individual as they tackle each aspect of their role.Resident Assistant Job Responsibilities
