There’s no place like home! Honors Resident Advisors (RAs) are paid and trained housing employees and student leaders who want to give back to the honors community by creating a welcoming, comfortable, and supportive living environment for current CHP students. They act as mentors, help students form study groups, advise students on how to get connected to the CHP and UCI, and inform students about UCI resources.
RAs are also part of the CHP leadership team, including the Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) and Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs). Together, the CHP leaders plan community events, coordinate CHP volunteer activities, and address honors academic concerns.
CHP freshmen, sophomores, and juniors in good standing are eligible to apply for this position. The RA position provides students with a wide array of transferable skills. After graduating from UCI, CHP RAs have gone on to be lawyers, professors, doctors, engineers, scientists, computer programmers, teachers, etc. CHP students who are looking for an immersive leadership and community experience would be a good fit for this position.
