Assistant Residence Directors (ARDs) are undergraduate students with CA experience. They supervise the service desk operation, co-advise their respective hall council, and work with ACs to manage the assigned building(s).
Community Advisors (CAs) are full-time undergraduate students who provide residents with day-to-day living assistance. CA's are located on each residence hall floor and in the Transitional Living Areas. They are trained to offer campus information, referral suggestions, peer counseling, and floor activity coordination. They are our community catalysts, generally assisting any resident in need and helping residents learn to live together successfully. We encourage you to contact them with questions and any residentially-related needs. Email is our preferred method, but also feel free to contact our Central Office at (309) 794-2686 if a staff member is not available.
