“Hire a championship team, not a team of champions”
The ORS Council is not "one size fits all." A mixture and balance of personalities, strengths, leadership styles, levels of experience, and more needs to exist on each floor, within each facility, and residence wide. This mixture and balance is what has allowed ORS to be successful, year after year.
An RA Info Evening is the best opportunity to learn about becoming a Residence Assistant (RA). The role, expectations, and benefits of the RA position will be explained by Housing Services staff and current RAs. Each will share experiences, testimonials, examples, and more. All attendees are encouraged to ask any questions.
Attendance at an Info Evening is not required, but recommended as an excellent opportunity to learn more about the position and improve the quality of your application.
