Apply to be a Residence Life Student Leader!
Living on campus at Elizabethtown College offers students a place to live, learn, grow, and be a part of a vibrant community! Residence Life student leaders cultivate inclusive communities, foster a sense of belonging, and inspire meaningful learning for all residential students.
RAs are diverse and dedicated community leaders who work from their strengths to support, engage, and empower residential students. RAs receive training before the start of each semester and during the academic year to enhance their skills in order to be knowledgeable resources for all students. Students working as Resident Assistants dedicate 15-20 hours each week to the responsibilities of the position. Each RA must maintain a cumulative and semester GPA of a 2.5 or higher, maintain good standing with the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities, keep other employment limited to 10 hours per week, and spend at least 10 hours per week in their residential community. Compensation for being an RA includes a room waiver and annual stipend paid out biweekly.
Community Fellows promote a sense of belonging and facilitate learning in our Independent Living Units (ILUs), which include the Hackman Apartments, Schreiber Quadrangle Townhouses, Featherton Crossing Apartments, and SDLC 2.0 houses. Community Fellows do this by hosting two social programs each semester and facilitating weekly adulting-based conversations and events based on the Live Etown blueprint. The Area Coordinator for the Independent Living Units provides support, guidance, and supervision to Community Fellows. Each Community Fellow must maintain a cumulative and semester GPA of a 2.5 or higher and maintain good standing with the Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities. CFs receive training before the start of each semester to enhance their skills in order to be knowledgeable resources for all students.
