If you have older siblings who attended a U.S. university, you’ve probably heard of the famous Resident Assistants (RAs). For those of you who are unfamiliar with the position, an RA is a student selected by the institution to live in an on-campus residence hall. Their purpose is to be a resource to students and the university. RAs serve many roles, but some of their main duties include the following: helping to reinforce campus policies and procedures, handling emergency situations, aiding students in their transition to university life, assisting in the Office of Student Life, and planning fun and exciting programs for residents. They also act as a role models for residents, and they assist and advise students in getting the most from their Franklin University Switzerland experience.

In terms of their training, RAs receive weeks of training in August before the academic school year begins. The nurse and university counselor lead training sessions so that RAs are prepared to deal with some of the emergency situations that arise throughout the year. RAs receive ongoing training throughout the year to help them better understand how to support students throughout their time at Franklin. Our RAs are trained to connect students with the professionals and resources they need to be successful at each point in their Franklin experience.
