The first step after turning in your application is to go through an interview. This interview is with a professional staff member and two current resident assistant, which allows them to assess many different qualities that are very useful while a resident assistant. These interviews are very important for a few reasons:
  • It allows the staff to get to know you whether they already do or don’t.
  • It allows you to show the staff some of the skills that they are looking for.
  • It allows you to address the reasons why you want to become a resident assistant.
  • And so many more…
The next step that you have to go through is the group process, which is usually held the saturday before the notification letters are sent out. This process allows both the current resident assistants and the professional staff to asses not only your leadership skills but also your teamwork skills. This day is extremely important for a few reasons:
  • It allows us to see how well you would work in a team setting.
  • It allows us to see how well you can work under a little stress.
  • It allows you to show how well you can take a leadership role and be a team player.
