What is a Resident Advisor (RA)?

Ecology House has four Resident Advisors or RAs that live within our halls. RAs are full time students just like you!  However, in addition to classes they work with residents to create community, provide support and share resources to help students navigate living in a residence hall, the university and their college experience overall.

RAs work directly with the Residence Hall Director and the Fellows to host a number of programs to develop and support the growth of healthily, safe, and engaging communities.

On campus, she's a member of the Cornell Concert Commission and Cornell University Figure Skating Club. Back home she has a Doberman named Loki, and she works at a vet's office where the office cockatiel, O'Malley, does his best to help out... or at least sit around looking cute!
