Katelyn Herreid, Grace Barrett UW-Whitewater resident assistants for 2015-16

The following students have been trained and certified to be University of Wisconsin-Whitewater resident assistants for the 2015-16 academic year:

  • Katelyn Herreid, of Twin Lakes, a senior communication sciences and disorders and Spanish major.
  • Grace Barrett, of Trevor, a junior geography major.

RAs are student staff members who serve as positive resources for other students on their residence hall floor, and encourage community-based learning and interaction among residents.

“They serve as a resource for students who need help and provide interventions with regard to roommate conflicts or other community disruptions. They develop a community in the residence halls,” said Trelana Daniel, assistant director for staff and academic development.

RAs must maintain at least a 2.0 GPA, full-time student status and complete several interviews with peers and academic staff members to hold this position. Students receive numerous benefits, as well as outstanding experience in communication skills and leadership.
