Honors Resident Advisors
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 honors students. They act as mentors, help students form study groups, advise students on how to get connected to Campuswide Honors and UCI, and inform students about UCI resources.
RAs are also part of the honors leadership team, including the Campuswide Honors Student Council (CHSC) and Peer Academic Advisors (PAAs). Together, the honors leaders plan community events, coordinate honors volunteer activities, and address honors academic concerns.
Honors 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, Honors RAs have gone on to be lawyers, professors, doctors, engineers, scientists, computer programmers, teachers, etc. Honors 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.

Hey everyone! My name is Faraz, and I am the Resident Advisor for the Campuswide Honors Collegium Houses in Arroyo Vista (1010 and 1012)! I was an RA for the CHC hall in Mesa Court last year (Loma), and I am super excited to be back again in this role! My primary responsibilities as an RA include providing support to my residents while also connecting them to the multitude of opportunities and resources that are offered by the CHC! The classes I’ve personally taken and the people I’ve met through the CHC have definitely made this program one of the highlights of my college experience, so I highly encourage all of you to get as involved as you possibly can! If you ever have any questions about classes, extracurriculars, ways to get involved in the CHC, etc. please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Looking forward to meeting and working with you all!
Leadership Role: Middle Earth CHC Hall Resident Advisor
Other Campus Involvements: ASUCI Commissioner, New University Narrator, Campus Representatives
Hello! My name is Brianna (she/her) and I am one of the co-RAs for the Middle Earth CHC Hall. I am a second-year student who is currently Undeclared, but I plan on majoring in Education Sciences. In addition to being an RA, I am also a Campus Representative, a Narrator for New University, and a commissioner for ASUCI for Campus Spirit and Well-being. If you ever have any questions about managing involvements, CHC classes, teaching, scholarships, mental health, or anything UCI related I am more than happy to help! I am a first-generation college student so I understand the unique struggles that come with navigating life on a big campus. The CHC offered me a welcoming community that provided amazing resources and smiling faces to help me adjust and thrive as a student here at UCI and I am so excited to be in a position to offer those same resources to all of you. I look forward to meeting all of you and continuing to grow our CHC community together!
