RA Application Process 


Resident Assistants

Living on campus at Elizabethtown College offers students a place to live, learn, grow, and be a part of a vibrant community.  Resident Assistants (RAs) are the cornerstone of our residential communities.  RAs promote a sense of belonging in residential communities and implement learning strategies based on our learning curriculum. 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.

Job Description

Responsibilities for each RA vary based on which building/area they are placed.  Each RA staff is supervised by and works directly with an Area Coordinator, a professional staff member who works in the Office of Residence life and resides on campus.  Key responsibilities for RAs include building community, implementing our learning curriculum, creating door decorations and bulletin boards, being on call to respond to student concerns, and promoting safe behaviors.  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.
