Each year, the Office of Residential Life chooses a group of outstanding students to serve as resident advisors (RAs) for the upcoming academic year. RAs function as informal mentors and advisors, speaking candidly with first-year students in particular about all aspects of the graduate school experience. They act as liaisons with Residential Life and the Offices of Student Affairs and Student Services, informing residents of housing policies, rules, and regulations; reporting needed repairs and facilities problems; and managing and reporting emergencies. They also organize activities that enable a diverse on-campus intellectual community to flourish at GSAS.
