Residence Life Staff

The Office of Residence Life provides a dynamic living and learning environment with social opportunities and educational experiences planned throughout the academic year. Residence halls provide a comfortable and secure environment and serve as centers for community development as well as growth.

DC's well-trained staff - which includes student peers - has a strong commitment to create and maintain a positive atmosphere for all students. You'll quickly get to know your Resident Assistant (RA). RAs are specially-trained student leaders who serve as role models, peer counselors, educators, information providers, and supervisors to the residents of his or her living area. RAs assist residential students in lots of ways - by planning fun and educational activities, suggesting campus resources, and maintaining a safe environment. They serve "on duty" to provide for student needs during evening hours.
