  • Resident Assistants (RA) serve in our residence halls and focus on establishing real and thriving communities for our first- and second-year students. Their role focuses on helping our students to connect to each other and to the OC community. In all things, RAs serve and support students through relationship and connection. 

    In addition to the RA positions throughout our residence halls, we have RAs in each of our Living-Learning communities who intentionally collaborate with their community's academic mission. If you're interested in working in one of these specific areas, please see the position descriptions below:

  • Community & Ministry Advocates (CMA) serve in our apartment areas. While living among and serving a select group of students in their apartment area, these leaders will work closely together, and in collaboration with the Spiritual Life and Residence Life team to lead students in creative service, worship, and mission opportunities. Although this role is spiritually focused, you don't have to be a ministry major. We are recruiting people who believe in being Jesus in and to their community-- loving people where they are. This is a creative, interactive, and relational role.

  • Assistant Directors (AD) are the highest level student leadership positions within Residence Life. ADs serve in a specific area and collaborate closely with their RD to lead their teams and serve the students in their area. ADs are trained in a variety of important functions, supporting their RA/CMA staff, building positive relationships with students, leading events, and aiding in other important Residence Life functions. Previous experience in Residence Life/Student Life is strongly preferred.
