Resident Student Association

The Resident Student Association provides a student voice to the University and the Office of Residence Life and Housing.  The organization serves the residential student body in three primary ways:  making student-requested improvements to residence halls, advocating for the residential experience, and building community for the Wake Forest residential student body.  It is a unique group of students that work together to improve the residential aspects of student life. If you are interested in joining RSA, please contact Briana Cresswell (Adviser).  The RSA office is located in Luter C102.

Resident Student Association meets weekly.

The Resident Student Association (RSA) is a student-led and run organization committed to improving residential life for Wake Forest students in three primary ways: building improvements, student advocacy, and residential activities.

Since receiving official recognition as a student organization on May 16, 1988, RSA has been guided by the ideas and ideals laid out in our vision statement: RSA strives to develop a strong on-campus residential community through programming, facilities improvements, provision of leadership opportunities, and by serving as a liaison between resident students and Wake Forest administrators.

Building Improvements

RSA works to improve the residential experience in a number of ways, one of which is building improvements.  Residence hall building improvements range from recreational equipment (ex. ping pong tables), study aids (ex. whiteboards), furniture, and entertainment (ex. televisions).

Residential Programs

RSA helps create a sense of community on campus by putting on fun and interesting activities for Wake Forest students.  RSA mixes together annual favorites like PigSkin PigOut, Treasure Hunt, and Exam Breaks with new events that RSA members create every year. RSA is also open to co-sponsoring campus events that benefit the student body. Contact RSA’s programming Chairs about potential event co-sponsorship at


RSA provides a student voice to the Office of Residence Life and Housing and represents the interests of the general student body in University decision making.
