Are you ready for your next great adventure?

by Ariella Perry

Your C.L.A.S.S. advocate (CA) and resident assistant (RA) know you by name. They greet you each time you pass each other on campus, talk to you about the difficult midterm in your near future, or address music being just a little too loud on the hallway. But do you know what it truly means to be a member of the CA-RA team? Better yet, do you have what it takes?

Being a member of our CA-RA team is a great adventure, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out this video with CA-RA giving you the inside scoop on life as a member of our student staff:

That’s just a little taste of what to expect when you join our team. Applications for CA-RA positions for the 2014 - 2015 academic year will be available beginning Monday, November 11 at 8 a.m. and will be accepted until Friday, December 13 at 5 p.m. Here’s what you need to know to prepare for your next great adventure with University Housing:

The Itinerary for Your Adventure
Those applying to be a CA or RA must attend an information session to be eligible to apply.  Please bring your UGACard with you to the information session. Applicants will need to fill out an application as well as submit a personal statement of interest and two letters of recommendation.
