A resident assistant (RA) at Cornell College is one of many leadership opportunities within the Division of Student Affairs. The RA lives in a residence hall and serves as a leader, helper and resource person for students. The RA serves as a critical link between the students on his or her floor, the assistant director for Residence Life and the Residence Life Office. This leadership opportunity requires being a representative of the college and a representative of student issues in the hall and across campus.

The resident assistant application process typically begins in December for the following academic year.
