Become a Community Advisor

Students outside dorm building

Being a Community Advisor (CA) is one of the most rewarding and rare opportunities a student can have during his or her undergraduate years. Responsibilities are numerous. The CA is the focal point for the day-to-day operation of his or her community, and as such, must simultaneously serve as peer counselor, referral agent, friend, social chairperson, community builder, and programmer.

The position of CA is an opportunity to maximize self-development, maturity, and confidence during the college years. Beyond this, the breadth of skills learned as an CA are highly transferable to the professional work world.
