Community Advisors

The Office of Residential Life employs 88 community advisors across our residence halls. The Community Advisor (CA) represents the Department of Residential Life as a key staff member in its operations. The CA serves on a team under the direct supervision of a Senior Community Advisor & Area Coordinator. Together, these staff members work with students to create and maintain an atmosphere that fosters a welcoming, inclusive and friendly community. The CA performs diverse responsibilities; acting as a role model, peer counselor, event planner, resource person, administrator, and crisis responder.  The New Community Advisor Application is now live in Residence. If you have questions about being an CA please feel free to e-mail ca-selection@mtholyoke.edu
