In addition to personal items to make your room feel like a home away from home, we encourage students to review this list when they are packing to come to campus: what to bring to campus.
We also suggest students contact their roommate to discuss sharing larger items, like the refrigerator or TV.

Resident Assistants (RA) are upperclassmen (sophomore, junior, senior or graduate students) who are hired by the Office of Residence Life to serve in leadership roles in the residence halls. Each residence hall has an RA assigned to each floor. The
