The Staff

Each hall has a hall director and each floor has one or two student resident advisors. The staff members are employees of the university who live in the residence halls and are responsible for maintaining safety procedures, supporting the objectives of the university and implementing programs of the student life division where friendships are formed and personal growth is encouraged.  On each hall page your will find a listing of staff for each building.
