Also working in the Townhouses are 6 Resident Assistants, who are student-leaders living in the Townhouses and serve as peer mentors and role models for the residents of the building.  RAs go through an in-depth training every August and January to provide them with the skills necessary to ensure all residents of the Townhouses feel welcomed and safe in the complex.
