Residence Life at Mount Mary
Here at Mount Mary, we are dedicated to building a warm and inclusive community for all of our students. Living on campus is a great way to get involved in the campus community, build friendships, and develop leadership skills.
Meet the Staff
The Assistant Director (AD) of Student Engagement and Residential Living oversees the day-to-day operations of campus housing. The AD is a full-time, live-in professional who provides on-call support for staff. Visit the AD in their office in Caroline Hall 155 to share any concerns with your campus housing experience, request an overnight guest pass, or suggest new program ideas!
The Graduate Assistant (GA) for Residence Life manages the Caroline Hall Front Desk and co-supervises the staff of Resident Assistants along with the AD. The GA lives on campus and provides on-call support as a professional staff member. You can reach the GA in Caroline Hall 148 during office hours for guest passes or any other questions you might have!
Caroline Hall has six Resident Assistants (RAs) who live and work in Caroline Hall. Each RA is assigned to one wing and can be your first stop for any questions or support. RAs are responsible for hosting weekly traditions with their co-RA, facilitating monthly programs, participating in an on-call rotation, and so much more! The RAs are dedicated to building community and love to meet with their residents. You'll often see your RA working at the Caroline Hall Front Desk or walking around the Residence Hall in the evening on rounds so make sure to say hello!
Blue Angels Housing Association
The Blue Angels Housing Association (BAHA) is the leadership and government body for campus housing. BAHA strives to provide for the community’s driven, educational, and culturally diverse needs. The executive board of BAHA plans events and service learning opportunities in addition to voting on issues that affect campus housing. All residents are welcome to attend the monthly General Assembly meetings to voice opinions and promote positive change. After attending one General Assembly meeting, students have voting rights in following General Assemblies.
Programs and Events on Campus
Each month, the RAs host six programs for residents to attend. These programs are generally offered in the evening, both during the week and on weekends, and cover a variety of topics from academic skills to diversity and inclusion. RAs also host three different weekly traditions each week that occur at the same time, place, and day of the week throughout the semester.
BAHA plans two events each month to provide formal and informal opportunities for community building. Don't miss out on our annual Halloween Dance, it's a great opportunity to show off your creativity through a costume and dance moves, not to mention the possibility of winning a door prize!
All of our events are free to attend and are a great way to get to know fellow students! Also, don't miss out on attending events hosted by Student Engagement and many student organizations each semester; there's always something to do on campus!
Caroline Hall Front Desk
The Caroline Hall front desk serves as the information and security checkpoint for the residence hall. The front desk is staffed 24/7 with either a student worker or security personnel. At the front desk, we monitor security cameras for campus, answer the university phone line, check in guests for Caroline Hall, and check out kitchen equipment and games for residents. For residents, the desk offers a variety of board games, two Blu-Ray players, ping pong equipment for use in the lounge, and kitchen equipment for cooking in the kitchens on each floor. Just bring your student ID to the desk to check out an item for 48 hours!
Working at the front desk is a great student worker position! You can see all current job openings for student workers on campus by logging into your MyMountMary account, clicking on the "Finances" tab, and selecting "Student Worker Positions" on the lefthand menu.
