Resident Assistants & Sophomore Advisors

Your Resident Assistants and Sophomore Advisors will give you study tips, organize cool events for your hall, and generally make life at Rose‑Hulman more awesome.

Students supporting students

Our resident assistant staff is responsible for providing an enjoyable environment for students living in the residence halls. They 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!

All the freshman RAs receive backup from our sophomore advisor staff—also known as our SAs. They live on the freshman floors (two per floor) and contribute their time to helping 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 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 residence hall staff.

In addition, six professional staff live in our residence halls. Eric Liobis, Cory Pardieck, and Emilee Roberts (Assistant Directors of Residence Life) live in Deming Hall, BSB Hall, and Scharpenberg Hall, respectively. A team of three Graduate Assistants also provide additional supervision.
