Students supporting students

The RA staff here at Rose-Hulman takes much pride in what we do. We are responsible for providing an enjoyable environment for students living in the residence halls. We provide hall education programs, promote floor activities and campus-wide events, enforce campus rules, act as a resource to all students, and most of all......provide FUN! Just because we love our jobs does not mean we try to tackle all these responsibilities by ourselves. All the freshman RAs receive backup from our Sophomore Advisor staff (We call them SAs.) Our SAs live on the freshman floors (2 per floor) and contribute their time to helping freshman students with homework questions, planning and promoting floor activities, encouraging student participation in campus organizations, and helping the RAs to build a floor community. We are extremely proud of the pride and closeness that is created on each floor throughout the year. Our system of RAs and SAs has proven very effective when balancing the responsibilities of a residence hall staff.

Five professional staff live in our residence halls.

Kyle Rhodes, Associate Director of Residence Life, lives in Apartments East. Eric Liobis, Assistant Director of Residence Life, lives in Scharpenberg Hall. A team of Graduate Assistants also provides additional supervision. Jessica Ahlborn lives in Deming Hall, Alex Merchant lives in Apartments West and Cory Pardieck lives in Percopo Hall.
