Step 2: Your Availability

Please look at your schedule and find out when you are available for a 30 minute interview as well as our Group Process Session on Friday, February 26th! 

  • Friday, February 26th– Group Interview Process (Morning)
  • Friday, February 26th- Individual Interview (Afternoon)

These interviews will take place in the University Village and will be with 1 or 2 Hall Directors and/or an Area Coordinator/Senior Resident Assistant.

To prepare for your interview, please review and read the application discussion questions as well as talk with your RA. For interviewing tips, please see the Career Center in the SUL!

Step 3: Reference Forms (NEW RAs ONLY!)

Each of the three references that you indicated in your application will need to fill out a Resident Assistant Applicant Reference Form.   This form will be sent to your references via email, so please be sure the email you enter on your application is correct. 

At least two of these references must be professional references such as a current supervisor, academic adviser, professor, etc.  If you currently live on campus, one of your references must be the current RA on your floor.  If you live off campus, a personal or professional (no relatives or friends) can serve as the third reference. 

Common practice is to give a reference at least one to two weeks to complete their form.  It is acceptable to give the reference a reminder close to the due date.  If you cannot give one to two weeks, give as much time as possible, your references are likely very busy people.   All references are due by Friday, February 19th, 2016 at 5:00pm.
