The interview process is divided into three parts. The first is a four-hour group interview with exercises and activities during which the Area Directors and senior Resident Assistants evaluate the candidates in a group setting. The second phase is a personal interview held with the Residential Life Staff Director and a Resident Assistant or Graduate Resident Assistant. After this process, those candidates who are invited to return will participate in a third group interview.
