RAs are student staff members, employed by UHRL, who assist students in their acclimation to the residence halls, apartments, and the JSU community.
The RA’s assist residents with roommate conflicts, homesickness, and academic concerns. They provide information about activities, events, and policies. RAs also help plan programs for residents living in their areas and will work to develop individual relationships with each resident.
Your RA has received training on responding to questions and concerns and can assist with most any issue you may be experiencing. In most cases, your RA can help explore your concerns and refer you to the proper campus resources. RAs rotate on-call nights, which consist of completing walk-through rounds of the residence halls or apartment complexes.
