Here’s what we mean. Each ResLife staff member meets each week with his/her mentoring supervisor to discuss floor issues and, well, anything really. Each staff team also meets every week for support, information sharing, and time together. Every staff member is also IN each week – they are available to students from 8 pm-11 pm for, well, anything really. We’re here for you!
Oh yeah, and we like to share food and tea and coffee. Swing by your RA’s room sometime!
people who care about others.
ResLife staff members care for students! We work hard to notice students’ struggles, talk and pray with our mentoring supervisors about them, and help our residents struggle in healthy ways. We’re here to listen. We’re here to help. And if we can’t help, we’ll get you connected with someone who can!
people who are learning and growing.
Why go to college if not to grow? Ouachita’s ResLife staff is not only here to facilitate growth, but to do a little growing of our own.
RAs have the opportunity to be trained to care for other, mentored in their ministry to others, and to learn the practice of community.
