Summer Assistants

The Summer Assistant (SA) position is an important part of our summer staff. The Office of Residence Life hosts a variety of camps and conferences and will also house summer school students. The SA position is a combination of two positions: the Resident Assistant (assisting residents, building community, and enforcing policies) and the Conference Assistant (preparing the hall for a camp/conference, providing overnight duty coverage, and assisting staff as needed). Most importantly, the SA provides positive customer service to all who stay in our residence halls during the summer. The Summer Assistant will work with a team of approximately 10 SAs.
