Become a Resident/Community Assistant

RAs and CAs provide leadership, assistance, and support to the students living in the residence halls and Cardinal Court student apartments. Due to the nature of living on-campus, a large portion of the Resident/Community Assistant responsibilities are not planned or scheduled. 

Every RA/CA must carefully organize time commitments to meet the demands of course work, the RA/CA position, and personal interests. Therefore students engaging in student teaching, internships, professional practicums, or employment outside of Illinois State cannot be allowed to serve in the RA/CA role.

If a student is interested in becoming an RA or CA they must attend one of the following information sessions:
