Student Leadership Opportunities

Being a Student Leader, whether a Community Advisor (CA), Orientation Leader (OL) or Resident Assistant (RA) can be one of the most enriching and rewarding experiences of your college career. The role of a Student Leader can be very challenging, demanding and it can cause stress. So, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the responsibilities and expectations of being a Student Leader before applying. Keep in mind that there are big differences between all positions (CA, OL and RA), most notably that CAs work with high school age students during the Summer Pre-College Program, OLs work with new incoming UArts students, and RAs work with students living in our residence halls throughout the entire school year.
