Be a Resource for Residents

  • CAs are the first person you should go to for any situation.
  • They are prepared to help with transition issues like homesickness, help with locating things on campus, roommate issues and much more.
  • CAs will plan events and activities for the floor and help get you connected with the other students on your floor.
  • They will also confront inappropriate behavior to help the community be an orderly place to live and study.
  • The most important thing to remember about your CA is they are right there with you whether you are a returning student or a first-year student.
