Your Adventure Starts Here!

Do you want to shape the residence hall experience for others? Resident Assistants (RAs) help their fellow students make their Missouri STATEment and create a welcoming community where students feel like they belong.

The residence hall experience is a crucial aspect of college life, especially for incoming students. RAs help build community within the residence halls by planning educational, academic and social activities; by fostering relationships with residents; and by encouraging campus involvement.

Some RAs specifically work with a living-learning community to foster student growth and development. They encourage faculty-student interactions as well as campus involvement. Check out the living-learning communities Missouri State has to offer.
