Hey Summerfulers! We are getting closer and closer to your arrival here at Stanford. The next step in the preparation process will be your Resident Advisors (RAs) arriving and getting settled in. They will spend the rest of the week preparing your summer home with welcoming decorations, getting the ball rolling on some awesome summer activities and becoming acquainted with Stanford’s Campus and Palo Alto so that they can ensure you have the best summer of your life.
Wondering what an RA is? RAs on the Social Enterprise program are campus leaders dedicated to sharing their knowledge and collegiate experience with a motivated group of high school students. RAs are all rising college seniors or recent college graduates and are hired with the greatest care. RAs fill the role of mentors, supporting students academically and socially in order to make the program the best it can be. Each RA will work closely with a group of ten to eleven high school students.
