Resident assistants (RAs) are students who live and work in Manhattan College’s residence halls. RAs are assigned to a particular wing or floor in each residence hall and are responsible for fostering community among fellow resident students by developing social and educational opportunities, assisting students in personal and administrative matters, and ensuring that the standards set forth in the Student Code of Conduct are consistently being met.
The RA position provides students with many opportunities to develop leadership skills, plan programs and events, exercise peer advising and mediating, as well as important administrative skills that will help in any career down the road.
Serving as an RA is a one-year commitment that may be renewed at the discretion of the Director of Residence Life. Full-time rising juniors and seniors — especially student leaders with involvement in artistic, athletic or ROTC programs — are encouraged to apply.
