Community Advisers

Your Neighbor, Your Mentor, Your Guide

A Community Adviser (CA) lives in your community and will assist you in making the transition to college life. Their purpose is to serve as an adviser for activities as well as a consultant for individual and personal questions and concerns. CA's are chosen after an extensive application process and comprehensive training. At least three CA’s are on duty in the halls every evening from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. The names of individual CA’s and the Senior CA cell phone number (218-289-0604) are posted in every hall.

On top of being a mentor, your CA will plan educational, cultural, and recreational programs, and other exciting activities for students on their floor as well as larger programs for all of the halls. Dance club nights, BBQs, bonfires and hot chocolate, video game tournaments and pizza/movie night are just some examples of the creative programs the CAs offer. Residential Life also sponsors weekend activities, providing students with the opportunity to be social while becoming more familiar with the surrounding area. Some of the activities included midnight dodgeball, free movie nights at the grand theatre, shopping trips to the Mall of America and community service projects.

Our Assistant Director of Residential Life and Community Area Coordinator also live on campus and are full-time university employees and college graduates. The Assistant Director and Community Area Coordinator supervise the CA staff and support you throughout the year.
