Leadership in the Residence Halls

Residence Advisors

Residence Advisors (RA) are a select group of upperclassmen students who have demonstrated an interest in helping their fellow students. Your Residence Advisor lives in the building with you and is there to support you in a number of different ways. They have been trained in everything from programming to crisis management. 


Each night, RAs are on duty in the Residence Halls.  Sunday - Thursday night, they staff the hall welcome desks 8pm-midnight.  Friday and Saturday, they staff the desks from 9pm-1am.  RAs will also answer the hall phone throughout the night.  RAs will respond to any emergency, complaint, or conduct violation, as well as offering a free lockout service and (in some halls) equipment checkout.

Residence Hall Association

The Doane College Residence Hall Association (RHA) was founded to allow students living in the residence halls to develop leadership skills through service to the residential community. Consisting of representatives from all of the residential halls, RHA focuses its efforts to help better life on campus. Currently in the works are next year's hall t-shirt designs. We're also planning the return of the Doane Hall Olympics for the 2015 - 2016 academic year. If you're interested in joining RHA please contact Robert Sharp at or Megan Failor at
