Advice for Next Year’s Resident Assistants

Advice for Next Year’s Resident Assistants

ENC’s residence halls are guided by a staff of 22 Resident Assistants.

Applications are underway and we thought the potential RAs might like a little advice from this year’s experienced team!

Get to know Dr. Dan Boone

by Jessy Anne Walters As freshmen fill the dorms and last year’s students head back to campus, they might notice a new face around campus.
