Resident Assistants are an integral part of the LSU community, helping many students build their college experience. They fill a variety of roles ranging from programmer to peer mentor to lifelong friend.

If you are interested in becoming an RA for the 2018-19 academic year, here are things to know:

  • Applications are open until January 18

We encourage you to read the RA job description and employment agreement to become more aware of the qualifications and responsibilities required of the RA role. In addition, we encourage you to reach out to your RA or your community’s Graduate Residence Director or Residence Life Coordinator to find out more about the role. If you happen to live off-campus, no worries! Simply reach out to with any questions you may have about the process.

As RAs serve in the premier student staff role on campus, we are committed to selecting only the most capable and dynamic staff members. Therefore, the selection process is designed to enable us to learn as much as possible about each candidate. As you progress through the application on Careers2Geaux, group process, and individual interviews, remember that our main focus is getting to know you; that is key to hiring individuals who will be successful in the role, and a vital member of our staff teams. Be true to yourself and be part of the tRAdition!
