About Residence Life

The Residence Life department is made up of professionals and paraprofessional staff members. The resident assistant (RA) is a highly trained upper-class student who is charged with the daily management of their assigned residential area. Daily tasks include responding to a community crisis, maintaining a positive learning atmosphere, enforcement of university policy, and upholding the Brenau Honor Code. The director of Residence Life supervises the RAs in addition to the responsibilities listed above.  All Residence Life staff, when acting in accordance with their position, acts as a university official.
