There are approximately 5,800 undergraduates at the University of Chicago. Each of these undergraduates has one thing in common—they know someone who’s a Resident Assistant (RA), whether they’re friends with an RA or have only come into contact with their own.
RAs arguably have one of the most important and hardest student jobs on campus. They take on a role that converts them from just being students whose main job is to take classes to being students responsible for other students.
