RESIDENCE HALL STAFF

01. To be of service to students. This can take many different forms, from providing a
friendly ear to organizing programs which interest or benefit residents.

All residence hall staff members are committed to serving students and sincerely want to
help if they can. Everyone knows they enforce the rules, but there are other things staff
members hope to do. The staff members:
01. want to know how you are doing. If you need to talk to someone, they encourage you
to come and see them They do not have all the answers, but they care, are willing to listen,
and will help if they can.
