Resident educators: A built-in support system
Resident educators, known as REs, are upper-level students who have been selected for this role based upon their level of maturity, social skills and desire to serve the University community.
These students live right in the residence halls so that they can help freshmen adjust to college life, provide support for sophomores, and offer peer mentoring for juniors and seniors. They take pride in helping fellow students to resolve any challenges they may face and to thrive at Point Park.
Residential education: Programs, activities and fun!
Within the residence halls, our residence life staff members aim to supplement the knowledge students gain from the classroom with exciting and fun programs and activities to help instill community values.
These activities focus on personal development, community engagement, civic responsibility and, of course, having fun! To learn more, visit our residence life page.
