Camper Park RA Selection 2017-18

What is an RA?
RAs (Residential Assistants) are student leaders who live in the communities they serve. RAs are the front line responders for most resident needs, and an RA's average day may change radically depending on what time of year it is, what challenges a given community is facing, or what type of students live in a given community. RAs may be assigned to work in the residential area they live in, and would report to the supervising Coordinator for Residential Education (CRE) for their community. Kristen Weaver supervises the Village and Camper Park. Feel free to email Kristen if you have any specific questions.

In a nutshell, RAs partner with students to develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities for lifelong engagement in caring and socially just communities! If you are interested in some more detail, you can read this description! (Description from academic year 2017-18, and subject to updates)
