Resident Assistants (RAs)

Residence Life Staff

Resident assistants (RAs) are responsible for maintaining the safety and security of students living in our campus residence hall, Harmony Hall, which houses more than 200 students.

While RAs assist students in adjusting to campus life and the Penn State system, they also work closely with the residence life coordinators to create healthy living and learning environments that promote student growth and development.

The duties of an RA include performing nightly rounds of Harmony Hall and the surrounding areas from 9:00 p.m. through the end of visitation hours. 

To contact an on-duty RA, please call 724-480-6245. To contact an on-duty Coordinator, please call 724-683-0245. Please be aware that these phones do NOT receive text messages; you must call for assistance.

In addition, RAs are responsible for implementing programs that meet the year-round needs of Harmony Hall residents. These events are coordinated frequently through the Office of Student Activities and the Athletic Department. Many programs are held on campus, but some are designed to take students off campus to enjoy diverse activities in and around the Pittsburgh area.

If you're interested in becoming an RA or if you'd like more information, please contact Parker Goolsby, residence life coordinator, 724-773-3952, or Amy Gartley, associate director of student affairs, 724-773-3956.
