Housing & Residence Life Showcase
This activity gives candidates an opportunity to see all campus communities and interact with staff and representatives from our various Living -Learning Communities. This event will take place the evening of Friday, January 23, 2015.
A large portion of the RA/LCA position is the ability to work as a
team and to effectively problem solve different situations. Candidates
will travel in groups of 8-10 and participate in group activities. Each
of the group process activities will show us both the good and the bad
of how a candidate reacts to these situations. Eligible candidates will be assigned to a group and will participate in activities on Saturday, January 24, 2015.
Candidates are interviewed, on an individual basis by a
panel of current Residence Life Coordinators, other Professional Staff
members of Student Affairs, Resident Assistants, and Learning Community Assistants. During this interview, candidates will be asked a variety of
questions assessing their knowledge of the Resident Assistant/Learning Community Assistant position,
and the skills and abilities each candidate possesses. There will be
anywhere from one to four people interviewing you, so be prepared to
speak with a small group of current staff members during the interview. Individual interviews will take place on Sunday, January 25, 2015.
