Housing

Living on campus is part of being fully engaged in college life. We provide a home away from home with new friends and old friends and allow you to learn where you live. Campus life is both spiritual and social. Our Resident Assistants are there to guide and mentor you; residence halls are there to make you feel safe and comfortable. Being a part of the OKWU family means establishing friendships that last a lifetime.

Residential Life Staff

Residential Life staff members are responsible for the overall administration and operation of the residence halls. Professional staff members hire and train RAs, formulate and implement policy, place residents, and discipline. They assist students in their growth and development, and model appropriate practices and policies. They establish residential policies to insure consideration for the time, privacy, well-being, and value of each resident.

Residence Hall Administration

Resident Assistants

The Resident Assistant (RA) supervises and mentors residents within the halls. RAs are students who have completed a selection process, demonstrated their commitment to serving fellow students, and have been trained in helping skills. The RA is a “helper” whose primary responsibilities involve developing relationships, implementing programs, dispensing information (or referring a student to someone who can help), offering personal advice, and confronting violations of community standards. There is one RA assigned to each section of the residence hall. RAs keep duty hours in the evenings on campus, and at least two RAs will be available in the residence halls each evening.

Assistant Resident Directors

The Assistant Resident Directors (ARD) supervise and mentor residents within OKWU’s Eagle Village. ARDs are Graduate Assistants who have completed a selection process, demonstrated their commitment to serving OKWU students and have been trained in helping skills. The ARD is a “helper” whose primary responsibilities involve developing relationships, implementing programs, dispensing information (or referring a student to someone who can help), offering personal advice, and confronting violations of community standards. There is one ARD assigned to each house in Eagle Village.

Resident Directors

The Office of Residential Life has two professional staff members residing on-campus. The Men’s and Women’s Resident Directors are available to foster OKWU community and serve as first responders in case of residential emergencies.

The Resident Director (RD) supervises the Resident Assistant (RA) staff and all activities within the men’s and women’s residence halls. Their primary responsibilities include supervising and mentoring the RAs, being the point person for any issues that arise within the residence halls, and following through on administrative tasks related to on-campus living. The Resident Directors for 2015-2016 are Chris Breiland and Ashleigh Johnson.
