Resident Assistants (RA) are undergraduate students who have been selected on the basis of their ability to communicate, willingness to accept responsibility, enthusiasm to help others, and familiarity with the University. In University housing, the RAs work to establish and maintain a living environment conducive to a successful educational experience as well as being a resource to students. Reporting to the Hall Director, they are responsible for building relationships, upholding the rules and regulations of TCU, disseminating necessary information, attending to the personal safety of the residents, and helping maintain and protect University property. RAs attend training programs and workshops throughout the year in order to facilitate their own growth and development and to offer better service to residents.
