Your student will be surrounded by a community of residents going through similar experiences. Having peers to connect with is very valuable, and having a student leader on the floor can be even more helpful. Housing Services partners with the Organization of Residence Students to ensure that residents have well-trained Residence Assistants living nearby to help in a variety of circumstances such as making friends and finding community, crisis management, extracurricular activities, and knowledge of campus resources. RAs are student leaders who have completed at least one year of university while living in residence. They have lots of tips and tricks for academic success and are also available for peer support and to help your student achieve social success. Encourage your student to get to know their RA as soon as possible – in fact all hands will be on deck for both Move-In days in September, so your student will meet several RAs before they even get settled!
