Hall Directors
The Oaks hires two Hall Directors each year. Hall Directors are high-level student employment positions often filled by returning resident assistants. Each hall director is responsible for the overall operation of two residence buildings and providing peer mentorship for half of our Resident Assistant staff. Each Hall Director has an individual special focus for their position; for the 23-24 academic year, our two focuses are administration and marketing.


Resident Assistants
Our student staff resident assistants are the primary resource for our residents living in the Oaks Apartments. The RA hiring process is quite competitive, and our staff members are chosen based on the level of concern and care they have for others, their knowledge of LSUA and offered resources, their commitment to campus safety, and their ability to effectively manage this position with their academics and other commitments. RAs are often involved campus community members that can relate to our diverse student body; in the past, this included athletes, international students, student government members, members of our dean council, and more.

Each building is assigned two RAs (one for each side), who live within that building and serve as our students' first line of contact. Information about who your RA is can be found in the Housing office. Some of the responsibilities of the RA include working move-in and move-out, planning and implementing educational programs, working the Front Desk at the Oaks, serving on an after-hours on-call rotation to ensure the safety of our residents with 24/7 access to a staff member, performing building room checks, and leading their building to victory in the LSUA Building War Competition. RAs are role models who can connect you to resources, offer advice about student life, help solve living concerns such as maintenance and roommate issues, and enforce policies to ensure everyone has access to a safe, but fun, living and learning environment.
