Job Description for Resident Assistant

Resident assistants reside in college dormitories and play an active role in the lives of the students also living in that dormitory or hall. University and dormitory rules are enforced by the resident assistants, who must act as role models for the students under their supervision. University students may go to a resident assistant if they have academic or personal problems, and resident assistants provide support and referrals to campus resources as needed. Since living in a dormitory is a new experience for most students, resident assistants help students adjust to their new living arrangements and facilitate socialization in their dormitory (often working with other resident assistants to do so).

Resident Assistant Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Resident Assistant?

Resident Assistant in Sautee ga:
"Rewarding."
Pros: Being the lead RA.
Cons: Not have Monday thru Friday.

Resident Assistant in San Diego:
Pros: Most of the residents are nice.
Cons: Bad management. They just wants money from residents. They dont really care about quality of patient care rendered and staffs are treated as if we are animals by letting 2 people only to working for almost 25 residents having said that most residents need to be transferred to high care.

Resident Assistant in Knoxville:
"A Memorable Experience."
Pros: Being able to care for others who cannot always help themselves. Every day is a challenge, but seeing my residents smiling faces when I come in to work knowing they depend on me as the one who will oversee their day makes it a pleasure to undergo all the strenuous duties I perform.
Cons: Not getting to spend more time with the residents and not getting to talk to them because I have so many other things to take care of. Dishes, serving 3 meals, washing and drying laundry and putting it away, taking out the trash. It's all so time consuming that it takes me away from them.
