For Dan Voors, working as an RA is a family tradition.
His mom, Carin, was an RA in Schroeder and his dad, Jerry,
was a dining hall student-manager. Dan will carry on the
legacy, supervising Mashuda’s 7East, a community of 28-30
men. “It’s easy to get guys active with sports, but I also want
to let them know there’s other things out there like ministry, community
service and student programming,” he says.
An RA supervises every hall
floor. These student-employees build the hall communities and enforce the
rules for living on campus. Dan knew he wanted the job after

“My RA was available to anybody anytime
they wanted to talk, and I could see myself in that role,”
