Resident Counselors

In February and March of each year, Resident Counselors are selected from the current first-year, sophomore, and junior classes. The Resident Counselors are expected to be peer advisors, community builders, and campus leaders in their residence halls and to serve as liaisons between the students and the Office of Student Life and the Office of Students Affairs. It is also a good opportunity for students to learn about themselves in relation to other people and to develop a wide range of skills that can be used beyond the scope of this position. RCs live in the residences and are expected to have an openness toward and concern for others, as well as a wide knowledge of the various aspects of the College (for which they will receive training). The job requires a general readiness to support students in their transition to college, a commitment to foster inclusive and equitable communities, the responsibility of reporting concerns about students or communities, and to assist all students as needed throughout their college experience.

To apply, students should complete the online application. It is also suggested that applicants speak to as many Resident Counselors and/or Orientation Leaders as possible to obtain a sense of the position and its responsibilities.
