One thing that each Ouachita student shares is the experience of living in “the dorm.” ResLife is part of everyone’s life at Ouachita. We’re looking for people who want to help shape this essential part of Ouachita’s community.
While RAs occasionally deal TP and douse noise-fires, they do much, much more. In fact, the growth opportunities and benefits are many for RAs.
Our Goal: Growth
RAs are challenged to live their faith in Christ everyday as they live and work with students. One of the benefits of being an RA is that you will learn about yourself. Through one-on-one mentor relationships with your Hall Director, you will be challenged not just in the way you serve, but in your personal growth as well.
Another benefit is that RAs learn about working with and serving others. You will grow close to your staff team as you work together to meet your residents’ needs. Serving as an RA provides valuable live-in ministry experience.
Finally, our goal is that every student who lives in a Ouachita residence hall would grow. Our RAs have opportunity to help reach that goal within Ouachita’s residence halls.
We’re excited that you’re interested in joining us as we facilitate the growth of students.
The Application Process
The application process is simple – just apply! We encourage you to read through it and talk with your Resident Director and RAs in your hall – they’re usually happy to talk with you about anything, but they will be especially glad to discuss ResLife.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact the Dean of Students, Scott Haynes, in Student Services at ext. 5220 or by email.
