MGCCC’s RAs are Here to Help

The Resident Assistants (RAs) of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College are student staff members who live with students on the wings and floors of our Perkinston Campus housing. Our full-time Area Coordinators train and directly supervise the RAs and have overall responsibility of the residence halls.

Resident Assistant Benefits

RAs receive a scholarship equivalent to the cost of a double room as compensation for their responsibilities. In addition to the scholarship benefits, working as an RA can help you achieve personal development goals (building your resume, learning leadership and organizational skills, conflict resolution, etc.) and help build lifelong friendships.

Duties and Responsibilities

RAs are responsible for developing a positive community, establishing and maintaining relationships with their residents, and performing administrative duties that keep the residence halls running smoothly.
