Please keep in mind that you must have completed at least one semester at Wake Forest to be an RA. Students in their first semester on campus are still eligible to apply.
Thank you for your interest in the Resident Adviser (RA) position at Wake Forest University.
The Office of Residence Life and Housing believes the Resident Adviser (RA) position is the premier leadership position on our campus. We are looking for students to join our team.
We are looking for the next generation of student leaders who care about creating an unrivaled student experience within our residential communities. We are looking for leaders who are influencers, role models, and community builders.
As an RA, you’ll partner with a diverse group of students to create a home at Wake Forest as a part of a residential community while creating programs and initiatives that enhance the student experience–one where each student matters, belongs, and thrives.
The RA position is also a resume builder.
The RA position gives you a unique opportunity to build leadership qualities that are highly marketable to employers. Management and delegation skills, the ability to express ideas, critical thinking, problem-solving, and the ability to work effectively with a team are just some of the transferable skills you’ll gain for both your academic and professional career here at Wake Forest and beyond.
There are also great tangible benefits! RAs receive a single room at a discounted rate and a $5,700 stipend for the academic year!
Most of all, we provide our leaders with professional development opportunities, weekly 1:1 support, a community within your staff team, and the opportunity to invest in your fellow peers’ lives! What other campus position does that?!
