Residence Life begins search for next year's resident assistants, multicultural advisors

Residence Life will begin hosting Prospective Staff Nights for students interested in becoming Resident Assistants or Multicultural Advisors Thursday. at 7 p.m.

At 7 p.m. in the Bovee University Center Rotunda, all residence halls will have booths set up with posters and flyers with information about each hall. This will provide prospective candidates a feel for which hall they want to be a part of next year.

Sara Olsztyn, Wheeler Hall’s residence hall director, explained how the process works after students check out the booths.

“The students then are split into small groups where they can talk to a panel of staff members and ask more questions," she said. "Also, during PSN there is a panel of RHDs who are able to talk about their area on campus and answer questions."

Sadie Quinlan, a Midland sophomore and current Wheeler second floor RA, said she attended a PSN last year.

“I had an idea of which halls I wanted to work for, but it was a good idea to go there to make an educated decision," she said. "It’s good to get more information to see if it’s the right program for you, and to see if it aligns with your passions in life."

Interested students can visit the Residence Life website for more information on the RA and MA programs and the PSNs.

The site includes questionnaires and job descriptions, as well as a timeline of application dates and more information nights. The other Prospective Staff Nights will take place Nov. 20 and Jan. 11.
