Residence Life Program

The residence life staff is comprised of upper-division student leaders who are selected through a competitive process during fall term for the next academic year. Resident Advisors (RAs) work with First-Year students in the First-Year residence halls. Community Assistants (CAs) work with upper-division students in The Village, Woods Creek apartments, and theme houses. The selection process to serve as an RA/CA is rigorous. RAs and CAs are knowledgeable about Washington and Lee and are available to residents to discuss problems and answer questions.
