EIU Housing


Resident Assistant            

"The RA position has helped me develop as an individual; I have encountered several opportunities to grow with others and be a leader on campus. I am forever thankful to have the opportunity to be a Resident Assistant at Eastern Illinois University."

Lindy Dokken


"After committing two years to the RA position, I am pleased to be able to leave  satisfied with all of the knowledge and skills that I gained along the way. The RA position was very rewarding in respects to helping me branch out of my “comfort zone” and reaching out to others while also using the skills learned while on the job and applying those transferrable skills to future employment. I am very grateful that I was able to be apart of this experience that not many other students on campus are able to be selected for. Thank you EIU for allowing me to grow as a leader!"

"I became an RA because I wanted to leave an impact on this campus and help others develop as leaders! I will always treasure the memories and experience that I have gained as an RA. This is an experience like no other!"

Liam Bechtold

Resident Assistant              

"During my first year living on campus, my RA did an amazing job of bringing everyone together and helping to create lasting friendships between the people on our floor. I became an RA because I wanted to create that same sense of comradery and engagement within my community, and, as I finish my first year as an RA, I am happy to see all of the friendships that have formed, and all the memories that have been made, between the residents on my floor!"

Eric Woolley

Resident Assistant              

"Being an RA has made a huge impact on my life this year and I couldn’t imagine my time here any differently! The relationships and friendships I’ve made with my residents and staff in Housing & Dining have been so positive, encouraging and supportive, and I’m so grateful I have the chance to be a part of something so wonderful and make a difference!"
