Resident Assistant Staff

Each residence hall is staffed by a professional Resident Director (RD) and a team of student leaders who serve as Resident Assistants (RAs). They are committed to helping residents adjust to life at Belhaven University and to grow academically, spiritually, and socially. RAs are some of the first people students meet when arriving at Belhaven, and they help with the adjustment to life at Belhaven University. We encourage students to get to know their RA; find the building where they plan to live, then find the section of rooms where the RA lives.
