Resident Assistant Selection
Welcome RA Candidates!
Being a Resident Assistant at Siena College is a great opportunity to develop leadership skills, learn how to be a member of a team, and help other Siena College students become involved in the residential and campus community. Every RA serves as an educator, advisor, administrator, role model, and mentor for the residents of a floor or wing in a residence hall. The RA works to create and maintain a healthy environment for the academic and personal growth of the students within each residence hall. In carrying out his or her duties, the RA is expected to treat other students, supervisors, and fellow Siena employees with courtesy and respect.
