Fall 2014 RA Application

 

 

 

 

Your resident assistant (RA) will be one of the first people you meet upon arrival to your floor. RAs are students just like you who work to create a better living and learning environment in your hall by providing programming, building community, and being available to you.  As a current student, your RA is a great resource for you, full of helpful tips and friendly advice. The RA’s also monitor maintenance requests and student safety & security. Each hall is also staffed with an area coordinator who is a professional staff member who supervises the RA’s and the building, also serving as another resource for you. Resident assistants and area coordinators work together with the director of student housing, a professional staff member whose office is housed in Pontchartrain Hall North.

Program Events in Pontchartrain Halls

A major component of a Resident Assistant's duty is to build a residential community and that is commonly achieved through event programming. Programming can come in three different forms. This includes planned, passive, and take. A planned program is an event created or co-sponsored by the resident assistant. This event is specifically tailored to fit the needs and/or interests of the residents. A passive program is one that is completed without assembling or direct interaction between the residents and/or the resident assistant. Passive programs are generally used to start a conversation on a particular issue affecting the residents. These programs can range from a bulletin board that can be casually read in passing, or they can be more interactive like taking a survey, for example. Finally, take programs require the resident assistant to accompany residents to an event which can include an on-campus program such as an institution sponsored event, a basketball game or perhaps a movie. All these programs help to develop a community amongst residents and incorporate the core values of Pontchartrain Hall's programming model.
