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.
For more information about the RA position as well as other leadership opportunities offered through housing, please see http://www.housing.uci.edu/communityLife/Leadership_and_Employment.html.
Resident Advisor – Arroyo (Mesa Court Honors Hall)
Hello there! My name is Lani Nugent, and I am beyond excited to help you have an awesome time here at UCI! I’m a second year Cognitive Science and Education Science double major with a plan to get a masters in teaching later on. UCI has been an incredibly special place for me to grow as a person because the people you meet here are some of the most supportive and caring ones you’ll ever know. Helping others find where they thrive is something I’ve realized I love doing, so I worked as an orientation staffer this past summer and will be the RA of Arroyo in Mesa Court this year. I enjoy making new friends, watching movies, singing karaoke, learning how to cook, and going to Disneyland. Please know that the RA’s and I are all here to help you succeed and make the most of your time here, so don’t hesitate to ask any of us for help. I can’t wait to meet you all, so I hope to see you around very soon! :^)
