What is programming?

Programming is simply the coordination and planning of an organized event or activity aimed at helping residents learn and grow. They can be educational and fun. Resident Assistants (RAs) assess the needs and wants of their residents throughout the year and try to provide an assortment of programs from large to small. Residents are strongly encouraged to share ideas with their RA about what kind of programs they would like to see. Residents are also encouraged to help an RA plan programs.

Why do we program?

As part of a university, it is important that Residence Life join in on the educational nature of learning. We strive to promote out-of-the-classroom learning as a way of life. We believe learning can be fun so we offer programs in a multitude of topics to prove it. Programs are one of the biggest difference between living on and off campus and are designed to help make your on-campus experience more enjoyable. RAs and campus leaders strive to provide a sense of community to help you feel at home.

RA programs:

  • Are intentional and pre-planned
  • Are aimed to meet your needs
  • Follow all university policies, procedures, and state laws
  • Are funded by your housing fees, so you should take advantage of them
