I'm currently a freshman. Can I apply?
Of course! Because you will be a sophomore upon beginning the RA/GRM position, you are eligible to apply. In fact, we encourage it!
Which buildings can I be an RA/GRM in?
We're currently looking for people to fill all 9 GRM positions for next year, which are located in the chapter facilities. However, you must be a member of the chapter in which you are applying to be the GRM.
RA positions may be open in any of our 29 residence halls. Each year, many of our current RAs graduate, leave to study abroad, etc. On average, we hire around 30 new RAs each year, and placement is decided based on where we think you would make the best contribution to the staff and the community you would become a part of!
I was found responsible for a student conduct code violation. Can I still apply?
We believe that past experiences help make the individual who they are today. We encourage people who have had a past student conduct code violation to think about how they have learned from this experience, and grown into a role model. However, we do not hire anyone who is currently on disciplinary or substance abuse probation. Additionally, if you are found responsible for a student conduct violation during or after interviewing for a position, you may be removed from the hirable pool of applicants.
If I don't get hired at first, can I be an alternate?
Each year, we typically keep a pool of alternate candidates in case any RA/GRM positions become open during the academic year. On average, we end up hiring 2-5 alternates for positions before or during the academic year.
How often do RAs and GRMs have to be on duty?
It depends on the area but it usually averages out to once a week and a half. It also depends on your schedule!
Will I get a cool t-shirt if I become an RA/GRM?
Yes. At fall training!
