Meet Your RAs

Your Resident Assistants (RAs) are UCSB and SBCC students who are trained for over eight weeks to assist you with many of your day-to-day needs and college survival skills. RAs wear a lot of hats. They are a “been-there, done-that” source of information about UCSB, SBCC and the community. They are our community’s “cruise directors,” planning social, recreational and educational events. They also help keep the peace, so you have a study-friendly atmosphere.
