Join our residential life team! 

We are looking for a team of responsible, caring, energetic individuals who are interested in working with high school students to promote a positive and authentic college experience.

Community Assistants (CAs) will serve as role models, provide valuable insight on the transition from high school to college, and promote a welcoming, inclusive environment. CAs live in the residence hall among our students, develop evening and weekend social programs on campus and chaperone field trips. 

Share your love for college and the U while building your work experience!
