Resident Advisors Help Students Transition to Campus Life

Resident Advisors Help Students Transition to Campus Life

With the 2022 fall semester in full swing, the University of Mount Olive has equipped the campus with a strong group of Resident Assistants (RAs) in order to make the on-campus experience a meaningful one. The RA staff has been working hard to provide students with a warm welcome as they transition to university life and move into the resident halls and apartments.

“The RA role is a multi-faceted position where upper class students assist other residential students by creating a community atmosphere, hosting programs, enforcing policies and addressing concerns of the students,” says Nicole Garrett, the Director of Campus Life.

This year, there are 17 RAs on staff for the 2022-23 academic year.  They are ready assist students with the transition to the University, encourage community involvement, and contribute a number of social and educational programs for the residents in order to create a comfortable and welcoming environment on campus.
