Meet the New RAs!

Posted by ENC Student Life on Mar 23, 2017 7:09:00 AM

As the 2016-2017 school year comes to a close we are sad to say goodbye to the Resident Assistants (RAs) who are graduating but we can't wait to welcome in some amazing new recruits! These new RAs will become the presence of Student Development in the dorms. They are paid to invest in students and help their peers have the best experience possible at ENC. What a terrific job!

We had a little party with our current and future RAs. Our graduating RAs got to pass on some wisdom to their incoming counterparts and we all had a great time. Ready to see who might be leading your floor next year?
