The Community Assistants (CAs) at St. Lawrence University are employed as para-professionals working to cultivate a strong community bond and while assisting with the educational, cultural and social development of each resident. They participate in training activities to better prepare them for leading a community and are typically very dedicated, highly involved, and caring community members. For a look at some of the activities and interests of the current CAs, check out our student profile page.
Overall, there are 57 CAs, 2 Townhouse Managers and 1 Student Housing Coordinator for the Office of Residence Life. These students work as a large staff of CAs throughout the year, but each CA belongs to a smaller team. These teams are directly supervised by a Residential Coordinator that works closely with a small group of residential buildings. For more information on these residential areas, follow the links below:
